Overview

Pharmacology: Connections to Nursing Practice examines key pharmacologic concepts and their links to nursing practice and patient care. The authors' approach recognizes that pharmacology is not just an academic discipline to be learned for its own sake, but also a tool for promoting healing and preventing disease. By using prototype drugs and grouping drugs by body systems and diseases, they offer you a solid foundation for mastering medications and their therapeutic uses.

The 5th Edition is updated with new FDA-approved drugs. It includes all-new case studies building clinical decision-making skills. The new edition also includes answers to case study and end-of-chapter review questions so you can quickly confirm or remediate your understanding of key chapter concepts.
