Additional Book Details

A favorite among nursing students, Pharmacology for Nursing Care, 8th Edition, features a uniquely engaging writing style, clear explanations, and unmatched clinical precision and currency to help you gain a solid understanding of key drugs and their implications -- as opposed to just memorization of certain facts. Compelling features such as a drug prototype approach, use of large and small print to distinguish need-to-know versus nice-to-know content, and a focus on major nursing implications save you study time by directing your attention on the most important, need-to-know information. The new edition also features an abundance of content updates to keep you ahead of the curve in school and in professional practice.

UNIQUE! Engaging writing style with clear explanations makes content easy to grasp and even enjoyable to learn.

A drug prototype approach uses one drug within each drug family to characterize all members of its group to help you learn about related drugs currently on the market and drugs that will be released once you begin practice.

UNIQUE! Special Interest Topic boxes address timely issues in pharmacology and connect pharmacology content with current trends.

Large print/small print design distinguishes essential "need-to-know" information from "nice-to-know" information.

Limited discussion of adverse effects and drug interactions keeps your limited study time focused on only the most clinically important information.

Reliance on up-to-date evidence-based clinical guidelines ensures that therapeutic uses are clinically relevant.

Integrated and summarized nursing content demonstrates the vital interplay between drug therapy and nursing care.

Coverage of dietary supplements and herbal interactions equips you to alert patients and caregivers to the potential dangers of certain dietary supplements, including interactions with prescribed and over-the-counter drugs and herbal therapies. Additional learning features provide a touchstone for study and review as you complete reading assignments and build a foundation of pharmacologic knowledge.
