    Nursing Spectrum Drug Handbook 2010

    I bought this book to help assist me with my nursing in community health. As a community health nurse I need to teach side effects and purpose of medications. I found this book very easy to use. It is easy finding medications and I especially like that there are pictures of many medications. Generic names are also provided and the index allows for easy finding.I think this book is something all nurses and student nurses will find a necessary tool for their practice. It is small enough to carry for easy reference. I think this book is easier to follow than some of the other drug books I have used in the past,

    Not just for nursing.

    This book is easy to use and gives not only relevant information but patient education as well. Takes only seconds to find the drug you wish to review, and is easy to read. Highly recommend it to those in the medical field and general population.
