Next---Catching up on a few things I've tried to work in for several weeks now..... Marijke Vroomen Durning, RN has written a fantastic educational and teaching tool for nurses: Just the Right Dose Your Smart Guide to Prescription Drugs & How to Take Them Safely. The book is thorough and easy to understand. It's a MUST for the nurse's toolbox and a great resource for patient education. Very down to earth and easy to follow information.


Next, A Nurse s Step-By-Step Guide to Transitioning to the Professional Nurse Role written by Cynthia M. Thomas, Constance E. McIntosh, and Jennifer S. Mensik who are all RNs with many years experience and extensive education and advanced degrees.  The book is full of great information and tips for nursing students and new nurses.

Written with the flavor of a textbook, it is also a great resource for anyone needing to research the professional nurse's role.




Designing and Integrating a Disaster Preparedness Curriculum: Readying Nurses for the Worst 
by Sharon A.R. Stanley and Thola A Bennecoff Wolanski two nurses with years of experience and multiple advanced degress, who are dedicated to helping nurses develop curriculum to educate them in how to handle disaster. "We live in a world where disaster incidents are on the rise. From natural disasters to war and conflict to infectious diseases, being prepared for such events takes tremendous preparation and practice. Nurses are on the frontlines of disaster relief and care, but too few are trained in disaster prep, response, and recovery." This book cites examples of some of the worst disasters and what went right and what went wrong in the response process and how to better prepare nurses for the future.
