Amelie’s Antibiotic Cards have been a best-selling prescribing resource for more than 15 years. Thousands of NPs and NP students have used the cards to cement their knowledge and understanding of antibiotic selection. The creator of the product is Amelie Hollier, DNP, FNP-BC, FAANP, the beloved presenter of all APEA live course review courses. Dr. Hollier last updated the cards in 2018 to reflect new antibiotic classes and medications. She made further updates in 2020 to share information about important trends in antibiotic resistance.
