See what instructors are saying...

“Davis Advantage was easy to access, with pertinent information. Having students prep before class is essential to learning ... [Davis Advantage is] concise and easy to read without going through paragraphs to obtain the information needed to understand the nursing process for a particular disease. Plus, rationales are included for improved understanding! Students want to know what is necessary to know. A clear, consistent format is helpful for them.”

- Suzanne Carlson, RN, MSN, Instructor at Southwestern Community College

“What I loved about Davis Advantage was the online supportive learning. The short video was packed with valuable information that appealed to the visual learner. The Q&A was great to validate key concepts; then there was the Personalized Teaching Plans for faculty that were an excellent source of an alternative classroom strategy. Loved the set-up!”

- Frances Rice-Farrand DNP, APRN, CNS, CNE, Instructor at California State University

“I like the focus on evaluation of nursing care, which is overlooked in many texts.”

-
Anne Hartman MSN, RN, Instructor Mount Mercy University

“Students learn in different ways and just a text may not be enough. The animated mini-lecture was exceptionally good…the short video conveys the concepts quickly. The Personalized Learning Plan can help struggling students get difficult concepts.”

- Susan Renda, DNP, ANP-BC, CDE, FNAP, Instructor at John Hopkins
