Winning this drug handbook would be a great help to me in my nursing studies. In only two short weeks, I will have completed my first year of nursing. When completing my placement at a long term care facility I was required to research around 20 different medications that my assigned resident was taking. Doing this took me a relatively long time since I do not have a drug handbook. Because it is a requirement to do a lot of medicaton research in second year, winning this drug handbook would save me many hours of research, allowing me to spend more time focusing on understanding the medication and effects it has, and would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you for your consideration.

This great app would be wonderful! I have the 2010 Nursing Drug Handbook and this would be on an i phone or Kindle and readily available when working with clients. It is the authority on the latest drugs and how they work, what they are prescribed for; doses, interactions, etc. What a great idea to have this as an app as well as a book!

unfamiliarity of different kinds of drugs would help me a lot in having this Drug handbook. This would be very helpful to avoid medication error.

Iam a nursing student and this will help in my clinicals where the instructors want to be able to know medications at a drop of a hat. With this I won’t have to carry the extra book.

It would definitely make work a lot easier to have a drug book on my iPod touch, I never like to give a medication without double checking especially when I’m not 100% sure… Sometimes I look them up regardless because I wonder if I missed anything lol :)

The drug guide in an app is GENIUS! No one can carry the book around all day on the floor and if you leave your book at the desk you risk getting it stolen. I would LOVE having the app available to me.

This is the best drug guide out there! Thanks for a chance to win!

Having the Nursing 2012 Drug Handbook application will open up doors for many of my students at Nurses Educational Opportunities where I teach American Heart Assocationa Courses. A lot of us nurses, are not used to using “techie” tools in our practice. We are used to calling for help when a machine doesn’t work. We are initimiated by technology. A lot of the nurses now have smartphones, and I want to encourage them to use it in their practice. I will demonstrate to my students how easy and reliable it is to use this application in their practice.

The Nursing 2012 Drug Handbook is awesome! It impacted my daily work studies and my nursing school by providing me the adequate information I needed to maintain a safe environment while passing medications! The Nursing Drug Handbook also has more medication information then others! Some will say ‘unknown’ but yet the NDG will give you a full description! I always recommend NDG and will continue to! It’s the only reliable Drug Book on the market that I can completely trust!

In our ED, we spend half our life trying to find a MIMS which isn’t missing the very page you need to look up adrug in a hurry!!! I would love to be able to grab my iPad instead.
It would also be great to have a resource that’s meant for nurses not pharmacists.
