Reviews for Davis's Drug Guide for Nurses, 14th Edition:


I'm a BSN student, and this book has been an excellent resource.  When my instructors ask me questions about medications, I know I will be able to answer any questions they have with this book... This was the book my toughest clinical instructor recommended to me, and my classmates who have other drug manuals wish they had this one.”

– Honor F., Nursing Student


As a student nurse, I spend more time with this book than I do with my family. Easy to read, good layout, informative, to the point. It was required by my program and I have found it to be a wonderful resource.”

– Jen S., Nursing Student


I am able to write nursing plans, understand disease process, and proper administration of drugs all because of this one book.

– Kia S.


Simply put, the best drug guide out there.
