Nursing2022 Drug Handbook® is nursing’s #1 drug guide.
It’s not easy being on the frontline of today’s time-stressed and rapidly-evolving healthcare environment. Every clinician needs to stay current on the newest drug therapies.
Administering the newest drugs with confidence — including remdesivir for the treatment of COVID-19 — is crucial in the defense against medication errors. For example, are you aware that remdesivir (Veklury) may cause acute kidney injury?
What is the Nursing2022 Drug Handbook?
Lippincott® — the most trusted source in nursing — has been publishing the most current drug information in annual editions of the Nursing Drug Handbook for over 40 years. Over 5 million nurses have relied on this comprehensive reference throughout every stage of their careers. Whether just entering the workforce or after years in the field as an experienced clinician, nurses trust Nursing Drug Handbook to include every need-to-know fact for safe drug administration.
As this reviewer of a recent 5-star rated edition states, Nursing Drug Handbook is “an RN must have! There’s no way to practice in today’s nursing world without a great drug reference at your fingertips and available when Wi-Fi is not!”
The first drug reference developed BY nurses, FOR nurses.
Unlike many other drug guides, only nurses guide a team of drug experts ... not physicians … not pharmacists … not consumers … to provide objective drug facts with NO drug company bias.
This comprehensive reference includes 3,500 generic, brand-name, and combination drugs — including 32 new FDA-approved drugs.
From administration guidance for every possible route to knowing when risks may call for changes to prescribed therapies, users can easily find answers to these new-drug questions …
- Which new drug approved to treat acute migraine with or without aura in adults has a maximum dose of 75 mg in 24 hours?*
- Which new drug is used in combination with trastuzumab and capecitabine to treat advanced unresectable or metastatic HER 2-positive breast cancer?*
- Which new drug is indicated for relapsing forms of MS, including clinically isolated syndrome, relapsing-remitting disease, and active secondary progressive disease?*
Nurses know best what nurses need, so the 2,071 clinical updates to 2022’s edition are included within nursing-focused sections for new dosages and indications, Black Box warnings, genetic-related information, adverse reactions, nursing considerations, clinical alerts, and patient teaching information.
