F.A. Davis, an independent Nursing, Medicine, and Health Sciences publisher since
1879, is dedicated to providing print, mobile, and web resources for students and
professionals. F.A. Davis is headquartered in Philadelphia, PA.
Essentially the F.A. Davis mission is to listen carefully to health science educators
and their students, analyze the prevailing competition, identify capable authorship,
and then publish the finest texts, references, and resources in a wide variety of
formats. Our goal is to assert leadership in this market, satisfying the timely
need for the most up-to-date, accurate, and informative resources from which students
can master their coursework. Our commitment to student needs, in turn serves the
role of the educator and the practice of the clinician as one facilitates the preparation
of the other.
In a world marred by an excess of mergers and acquisitions, F.A. Davis Company remains
as it started over 130 years ago...a family-managed, independent publisher in touch
with the grass roots synergy of its customers. The underlying thrust of our mission
is to keep it that way.
