Always a student favorite, Pharmacology for Nursing Care offers a clear approach explaining drug prototypes and how they work. It provides the background needed to understand related drugs currently on the market, as well as drugs yet to be released. In simplifying a complex subject, this text focuses on the essentials of pharmacology. Large print is used to show "need-to-know" information, and small print is used for "nice to know" material. At the end of each chapter, a summary of major nursing implications helps in applying the material to real-world situations. This edition includes a new companion CD-ROM featuring NCLEX examination-style review questions, a variety of electronic calculators, and animations depicting drug mechanisms and effects.Lehne, Richard A. is the author of 'Pharmacology for Nursing Care', published 2003 under ISBN 9780721698434 and ISBN 0721698433.
