    I forget the name of the care plan book we used in school, the author was something Cox. I had one clinical instructor who really didn't like it and told us she would not accept care plans that were clearly based on Cox. (No skin off my bones, I had never even opened the bokk!) Our next rotation was OB, on our first night as we were heading off the floor one of the girls in my group brought up care plans and asked "Do you like Cox?"

    EVERYRONE burst out laughing... I swear I saw one of the babies in the nursery crack a smile!

    We are permitted to purchase the book of our choice. First year here and I am using "Doenges, Moorhouse and Geissler-Murr."

    I like this one for my program because it has very clear and concise rationales for all plans. Very lengthy and not very realistic in the real world but for school it is excellent.

    That was one of the "recommended" books at my school. That and 3 other books on top of the 10 gooks they made us buy (all for one class - but i think we use them again in some other classes)

    I went ahead and bought it. The teachers seem to really suggest it.
