Question about reference books?

  1. What are some good reference books for geriatric NP who will deal exclusively with geriatric population. I have no experience with this population at all and needless to say will be my potential first job as a NP. Any suggestions or tips will be appreciated.

    Hi Reeya. i don't have advice, i'm sorry but i just wanted to say congrats on your first NP job. I remember you posting a lot while still in school and seeing you make it to the finish line is very inspiring. I will be done this december God willing. Good luck! I'm sure you will do great.

    The Oxford American Handbook of Geriatric Medicine edited by Durso is the best resource I have found for geriatric medicine. It is broken down by systems, and is a terrific resource and very easy to use as a quick reference. It is only about 30 bucks on Amazon---definitely get this book if you will be working geriatrics! hope this helps. Tracey
