    Zenman your posts are very insightful. I purchased these on amazon the day you posted them! I finished Deja Review in one day and I'm working on psychopharmacology demystified. These are great adjuncts to my texts and make the information easier to digest. Thanks again!

    Hey zenman, this might be kind of premature, but do you have any book recommendations for students who are just starting the PMHNP path? I have a few months before school starts, and would love to spend some time familiarizing myself with the field.

    I'd love to do the Rush program but I already have one Masters and I don't know if I'll have enough financial aid to complete another at an expensive school. Ugh.
