Have purchased many different books/apps to use for quick reference for clinicals as a 2nd yr nursing student. This is by far the best for what I need. The book is so compact to fit nicely in scrubs, while containing the important nursing implications for each drug.

Just wish I would have bought this book when I first started in the nursing program. I would highly recommend this!!!!

I bought this book specifically for clinicals because it was easier to haul around than my larger guide. I can quickly look up any drug I have given in the past four months and it has really allowed me to get a quicker handle on my drugs than before I used the guide. I have never given a drug that is not in this book, including your "dated" and less used drugs like Tigan.

This book is also invaluable for charting and learning your abbreviations - It also explains the Latin origin of the word, which allows me to better memorize and understand it as I read through nurses' and doctors' notes. My only complaint is that the book wears so fast, but I constantly use it or loan it. I hope my school orders them in bulk for a cheaper price at the bookstore for future students, but it is well worth the $9.

I needed a pocket book for work that would give me as much info as a larger book. This is excellent & easy to carry. The last drug book I bought was from 2007, so I needed something up-to-date!

I was teaching a medication administration class @ the time.

The content was not enough ( # of drugs & side-effects) to benefit my students.

I used it all the time in 1st semester of nursing school and I use it now in 2nd along with the fact that it's so little I also take it to clinical. I see other people taking their huge drug books to clinical and this one is sooo convenient and has good drug info in it.
