    Which topics in microbiology are the most useful in nursing?

    We are responsible to know what medications we are giving: effects, side effects, administration frequency, dosing, etc.... whether orders are for heart, diabetes, infective processes..... How will you know what antibiotics, antiviral, fungal ......... should be given and why if you don't know microbiology? Will the antibiotic be effective? if you don't know the resistance patterns of microorganisms.... I would give microbiology a little more consideration...
