View Comments (1)Print ArticleEmail Article
According to the CDC, during the past 20 years, there has been a dramatic increase in obesity in the U.S. and rates remain high. More than one-third of U.S. adults (35.7%) and approximately 17% (or 12.5 million) of children and adolescents aged 2-19 years are obese. ADVANCE for Nurses offers this resource guide to provide a quick reference of the drugs available in treating obesity. The guide highlights drugs by brand name, generic name and drug classification, as well as guidelines for use. This includes indications, clinical actions, warnings/contraindications, drug administration and monitoring.

Note: Refer to complete prescribing information for information on use in these special populations: children, pregnancy, lactation, elderly, liver disease and kidney disease.

When will job fairs accommodate LPN's a little more specifically, as I have been an LPN for over 30 years and practiced for 17+ years? Due to my personal circumstances, as much as I have wanted to elevate my level of education, I have not had the workable opportunities to advance my education formally. I have relied on periodical and online resources to increase my knowledge base. I have subscribed to Advance since it was originally directed toward the LPN field of nursing.
