I am a creative writer that has a unique point of view on everything. My opinion may not be the same as yours but that's what keeps everything interesting. How boring the world would be if we were all the same.

If you need a nursing guide that is complete this is it. You can find all the common medications in here, including pediatric medications. It is a durable guide that can easily be wiped down if you do accidently get something on it. It is perfectly sized to go into your pocket and refer to easily.
You have to update your edition regularly as medicine is constantly changing. This means that you may find that some things in the book will not help you as much as you would like. It is meant for professionals and students so you will not benefit by keeping it in your home first aid kit. It is something that you will not need regularly.
Nursing and pediatric students will find that this guide and useful and easy to reference to for studying or in an emergency situations. It can easily fit into your pocket or emergency kit so that you have it when you need it. The spiral format lies flat so that you do not lose your place when you need to lay it down. The drug guide is inclusive of everything you will come across in real situations as it includes the most frequently used medications. You can even find pediatric information including drugs and dosing. It is made of a material that can wipe down and disinfected should you come across a situation that renders it dirty. The wording is meant for nurses so the common person with no education or background in medicine may find it very confusing to use. The print could also be a little bit bigger so that it is easier to read when you lay it down. Overall it is a good guide that includes a lot of very helpful information. Students and professionals alike will find it helpful in many situations that they need a refresher on.
