Any practicing health library needs this

The 10th updated edition of a key drug reference handbook is especially recommended for college-level health libraries catering to nurses. Its update covers 40 new drug monographs, adds new appendix updates on compatibility and diagnostic aids, surveys 4800 medications in an alphabetic arrangement by both generic and brand name, and is packed with keys and guidelines for nurse practitioners and clinical reference. Any practicing health library needs this.

FNP pharmacology course

Bought this book for a pharmacology class and intend to keep it for practical use as a family nurse practitioner. It has recommended doses for specific illnesses/ infections. Only wish it also had number of days for use. Does in some cases but not all. Had to use another reference. But all in all I like and use this book alot.

Excellent Resource!

This book is an excellent resource for the APN or APN student. The information presented is easily understood and formatted in a logical manner. The drugs are organized alphabetically according to generic name and the compact size makes it easily portable. This book has become an excellent tool in my work. The only recommendation I have is that the book should be spiral bound for easier page turning.

Excellent Resource

This book is complete with forms drug is available in, dosages available, side effects, patient teaching, warnings, lab issues, physical assessment, dietary, geriatric & pregnancy issues. A very good reference for any medical professional to have though designed for advanced practice nurses.

Superior to other References

The Drug Information Handbook for Advanced Practice Nurses is the Nurse Practitioners premiere drug reference. Drugs are arranged alphabetically by both generic and brand name. Each drug is discussed at it's generic listing. Brand names give the generic name and page number allowing quick reference. The content is very encompassing with nearly all new and old drugs referenced. The usual categories of drug name, therapeutic category, use, etc are included. I find the section on patient information and instruction most helpful in discussing agents with patients. Indices include controlled substance (helpful in states where APN's cannot prescribe controlled substances) and pharmacologic category.There are over 200 pages of appendices including guidelines and comparative lists and charts.The size of the book makes it easy to carrry.This is my third yearly purchase of the The Drug Information Handbook and second year for Advanced Practice Nurses version. Our service bought 12 copies.G Sinks, RN, MSN, CS, FNP
