Culture-Counts-Text-Only-4th-Edition-9781337109680-Serena-Nanda6. Culture Counts (4th edition)
by Serena Nanda ISBN: 9781337109680
As Walt Disney pointed out repeatedly: it’s a small world, and it’s getting smaller all the time.

Microbiology-2nd-Edition-9780815345138-Anthony-Strelkauskas7. Microbiology (2nd edition)
by Anthony Strelkauskas ISBN: 9780815345138
The love of learning is infectious, but so are pathogens, which might be why this textbook is written for pre-nursing and allied health students using the theme of infection as its foundation. Microbiology is student-friendly, with text, figures, and electronic resources designed to help you understand difficult concepts and keep you interested in the material.

Microeconomics-10th-Edition-9781259655500-Colander8. Microeconomics (10th edition)
by Colander ISBN: 9781259655500

Daviss-Drug-Guide-for-Nurses-With-2-Access-15th-Edition-9780803657052-April-Vallerand10. Davis’s Drug Guide for Nurses (15th edition)
by April Vallerand and Cynthia A. Sanoski ISBN: 9780803657052
Dear nurses, all you need to know how to do is to give shots, change bandages, and absolutely everything else in the world that keeps us alive. We don’t know how you manage it all, but Davis’s Drug Guide is here to help by delivering all of the information you need to administer medications, with well-organized monographs for hundreds of generic and thousands of trade-name drugs. That’s impressive enough to make us regret we already used the “this textbook is a real life saver” quip for entry #5.
