We had to know:
Use (what is the drug prescribed for)
Action (what does the drug do; at the cellular level)
Nursing Considerations (check B/P prior to giving, etc.)
Administration Facts (give with food or without, dilution amounts, etc.)
I carry my drug book with me like a Bible!!!!!!!!
Everything you need to know is in the book!
