The Davis’s Drug Guide for Nurses will 100% be required! Definitely an essential and will be used in all courses throughout school.

I have the 13th edition! (the newest edition will contain the most updated drug info but the old ones are usually sufficient)

Lastname, A. B., & Lastname2, A. B. (2019). Name of chapter. In A. H. Vallerand & C. A. Sanoski (Eds.), Davis’s drug guide for nurses (16th ed.) (pp. XXX-XXX). Philadelphia, PA: F. A. Davis Company

NANDA International: North American Nursing Diagnosis Association

NIC: nursing interventions classification
NOC: nursing outcomes classification

APA format for a specific chapter in a textbook:
Author, A. A., & Author, B. B. (Year of publication). Title of chapter. In A. A. Editor & B. B. Editor (Eds.), Title of book (book edition if applicable.) (pages of chapter). Location: Publisher

(you can put the book edition and pages # in the same parenthesis or separate them, APA basically says it is your preference however, some profs prefer one way over the other!)

National Center for Health Statistics, CDC. (2019). Reported tuberculosis in the United States, 2018 [Data set]. Retrieved from https://www.cdc.gov/tb/statistics/reports/2018/table1.htm

I do have the APA manual and refer to it occasionally but it’s quicker to check Purdue Owl 😉

*All references are in APA format*
*All textbooks were purchased from Amazon*
