“In today’s technology-driven world, students and clinicians expect to be able to retrieve the information they need when and where they need it,”

F.A. Davis Company announces the publication of the 22nd Edition of Taber’s in print, mobile, and web formats. For nearly 75 years, nursing and healthcare students, educators, and practitioners have turned to Taber’s as their all-in-one, go-to source in the classroom, clinical, and beyond.

“In today’s technology-driven world, students and clinicians expect to be able to retrieve the information they need when and where they need it,” said Robert H. Craven, Jr., President of F.A. Davis Company. “Taber’s 22 responds. In hand, online, or on a mobile device, our customers are able to access the authoritative content of Taber’s in the medium of their choice. We’ve also made sure that Taber’s meets the evolving needs of healthcare instructors, students, and practitioners with new web-based resources and a new flash card app. The New Edition of Taber’s is the most versatile and authoritative source of healthcare knowledge available today.”

Taber’s 22 is today’s most comprehensive health science dictionary.

Readers will find cyclopedic entries, more than 65,000 reader-friendly definitions, detailed, full-color illustrations, patient care statements, appendices with nursing and allied health-specific resources, and so much more.
