Angelow releases two new books in nursing
Anthony Angelow is a highly accomplished nurse practitioner with a list of achievements and titles throughout his career and he has added another title—author. Angelow recently released two books, Essential Procedures: Acute Care and Adult Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioner: Exam Review Plus Practice Questions.
Angelow grew up in Hammonton and after high school attended Jefferson University where he received his bachelor’s degree in nursing. Later he received his master’s degree from Mount Carmel College of Nursing and his Ph.D. from the University of Northern Colorado.
Angelow’s roots in nursing and healthcare date back to his days as a highschooler in Hammonton, when he volunteered at Kessler hospital.
“I started when I was like 14. I was volunteering at Kessler hospital that was here in Hammonton and I knew I wanted to do something in healthcare. I didn’t know exactly what it was, but it was the nurses there that inspired me to become a nurse to begin with,” Angelow said.
After years of being a nurse and nurse practitioner, Angelow realized his love for teaching and education. Teaching patients and their families about necessary information and teaching nursing students that were on his unit made Angelow want to seriously pursue education.
Angelow had been traveling the country to help educate nurse practitioner students prepare for their Board Certification since 2015 before releasing his books. There are limited resources available for students in his field looking for help in passing their Board Certification test, Angelow wanted to help change that with his book, Adult Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioner: Exam Review Plus Practice Questions.
“The specific type of nurse practitioner that I am, there’s very limited resources out there for students to prepare and to study with as far as Board Certification goes,” Angelow said. “So they (F.A. Davis Company) were interested in putting out a book to help students become certified, kind of like a review book.”
This process began in 2018 for Angelow and in that same time he also worked on another book, Essential Procedures: Acute Care, which was also recently released.
“Through that there was another company who had approached me who was interested in my nursing education background and was interested in doing a book for procedures to train nurse practitioners and other advanced procedures like physician assistants to be able to do common procedures that we do within the hospital environment,” Angelow said.
The book is aimed to help a wide group of people, from students still studying to people well experienced in their field.
“It could be used for anybody who is new to procedures and new into practice and performing these procedures and getting ready to be credentialed or it can be somebody who has been in practice for 20 years who is maybe taking on a new role and doing new procedures they’ve never done before,” he said.
After struggling with the lack of resources when he was a student, Angelow wanted to use his love for education to continue contributing to the field of medicine.
“I wanted to be able to contribute back to the profession through my love of education and being able to provide more resources to students and new to practice nurse practitioners,” Angelow said.
