I'm discovering that having more than one drug book on hand for things like med cards and care plans is a must. You will not as easily get by with only one drug book and the online stuff it offers. That being said, this book is no exception. As the title says, this drug book is not all-encompassing of the knowledge you need for nursing school. However, the absolutely most invaluable tool that is included with this drug book in particular is an online resource called "construct-a-card" which allows you to create your own customized drug cards. AMAZING program!

This book is organized by drug class, not alphabetically by generic drug name, which I find tedious for looking up drugs since I usually have to look in the index first for the drug and then find the page. That helped it lose a star.

Another helpful reference I've found is the Physician's Desk Reference on supplements and over-the-counter drugs. Using the construct-a-card program and the PDR book, I could create "med cards" for supplements my patients are on. Terrific and knowledge-expanding resources!

Despite its drawbacks, I would buy this book again mostly for access to the med card program and as a supplement to my main drug book (Pearson's Nurses' Drug Guide 2010).

I work in the substance abuse treatment field, and have used the Nursing Drug Handbook for several years. I like the organization of drugs by classes, and the descriptions (pharmacology, indications, side effects, dosages, formulations and routes of administration, interactions with other drugs) are concise and informative. Although intended for a medical context, it has served me well in my work, and my colleagues frequently borrow it when they have questions about client medications and how they relate to client substance abuse and mental/behavioral health issues. I have looked at similar items, but have found this one best suited for what I do.

I have used this drug handbook for over 20 years both while working in the hospital and now in an out-patient clinic and it keeps getting better. Much simpler/quicker to use than others recommended by nursing schools/instructors. Even the doctors use it. The chief physician of the division specifically requested this book for use in our clinic, so much that he even paid for them!

Even though there are two (and possibly three if you count the preorder for the 2014 version) newer versions of this book, I'm ordering this one because it is the latest version that has the drugs organized by category (antidepressants, etc).

I've used various revisions of this book for years (over a decade) and I can't figure out why the publisher suddenly went brain dead in the 2012 version and listed all the drugs alphabetically by generic name. That's what the index is for. Having them organized by category is the MAIN distinguishing feature of this book. Without that, this becomes another "also ran" of drug guides and can easily be replaced by a quick google search.

We order each year for our nurses' use. This provides an excellent reference for them in handling medications and refills. Amazon provides this at nearly half price.

This is a good drug reference with lots of useful information in it. It is great for nurses that don't need IV drug compatability information. That's the only thing that's lacking, which makes the Davis Drug Guide a better choice for RNs.

Several of the prescription meds I take aren't in the handbook. They are older meds not the latest thing so I was disappointed. It didn't meet my needs.

This book is organized and easy to read. I love this book. It has inserts that show the time and effort, yet not too hard to read for even a highly educated layman. The pictures are also nice as well. It is easy and convient, unlike the PDR. Drug Facts and Comparisons have no Pics. The #1 Drug Book for me.
