    Our program recommends either Davis or Mosby. I own Davis but I think both are good.

    I personally don't recommend Davis..Our school requires it but we all realized it's not very good.

    Same here. Our program used both but the majority of us used Davis

    i personally like Davis. It comes with a CD to download onto your PC. Great to cut and paste info for care plans instead of writing it all out by hand!

    Our program made us purchase Davis, and that is also what I see at the hospital at the nurse's stations. It's easy enough to use, but I've never seen any other kind.

    What is the difference between Davis and Mosby anyone know? Or are they both pretty much the same?

    I am taking pharmacology right now and we use Davis's drug guide for nurses. It is wonderful and has helped me so much.
