This proven book will help you every step of the way to master one of the most challenging content areas in the LPN/LVN curriculum. Organized by body system, the book provides a clear, concise introduction to pharmacology, focusing on basic principles and the nurse's responsibility in drug administration.

  • Focus your reading and enhance your mastery of course concepts through chapter-opening Learning Objectives, Key Terms, and Drug Class lists that identify potential errors and safety concerns.

  • Master important patient care concepts with Pharmacology in Practice case studies that focus on assessment, administration, or teaching issues that have an impact on a real-life patient. Chapter-ending Think Critically questions return to the patient in the case study and ask you to explore options and make clinical judgments related to the administration of drugs.

  • Access vital tools for your future career, including Drug Interaction Tables that provides at-a-glance information about the likelihood of a patient problem when multiple drugs are given and Summary Drug Tables that list drugs from the classes discussed in each chapter, including names, uses, frequent adverse reactions, and general dosing information.
  • Meet the needs of specific populations at risk or needing specific drug administration considerations through practical Lifespan Considerations boxes.
  • Expand your knowledge through Herbal Considerations boxes that provide information on herbs and complementary and alternative remedies that may be used by patients under their care.
  • Prepare for situations that may arise during drug therapy for patients with chronic illnesses, such as diabetes, hypertension, or epilepsy, including issues of polypharmacy through Chronic Care Considerations.
