I am starting my first *real* FNP job in a few months and would like to invest in a few more reference books to keep in my office. It is a family primary care practice... mostly adults but some peds come through the door, as well. It is part of an academic medical center so I will have access to lots of online resources-- UpToDate, LexiComp, etc.
These are the texts that I still have from grad school:
- Bates Guide to Physical Examination (Bickley)
- Pharmacotherapeutics for Advanced Practice (Arcangelo & Peterson)
- The Sanford Guide
- Differential Diagnosis in Primary Care (Collins)
- Primary Care: A Collaborative Practice (Buttaro)
- Pediatric Primary Care: Practice Guidelines for Nurses (Richardson)
- AAP Bright Futures Pocket Guidelines
What are your favorite must-haves to keep near your desk? What am I missing? Is it worth investing in a derm book? Is the 5-Minute Consult helpful?
What did you find yourself reaching for again and again when you were a new provider?
