very good guide  March 20, 2011

I got this book as a required text for nursing school, although I have yet to really need it for class, I have used it as a resource many times and it has a lot of information in it. The book is set up for student success and understanding. It explains the biology and mechanisms of action for cl[censored] of drugs. Then it gives you prototype drugs and their mechanism of action, uses, side effects, and contraindications. Highly recommended.






Pharmacology : Connections to Nursing Practice: 4 out of 5 stars based on 1 user reviews.

Summary

Pharmacology: Connections to Nursing Practice recognizes that pharmacology is not an academic discipline to be learned for its own sake, but a critical tool to prevent disease and promote healing of illness. This connection to patients, their assessment, diagnoses, and interventions, supports basic nursing practice. Like other core nursing subjects, the focus of pharmacology must be to teach and promote wellness for patients.Pharmacology: Connections to Nursing Practiceidentifies key pharmacologic concepts and mechanisms and clearly connects them to current nursing theory and practice for providing optimal patient care.Nursing students or practicing nurses
