Summary

For all courses in pharmacology included in instructional programs for students of practical and vocational nursing. This comprehensive, up-to-date text introduces pharmacology from an interdisciplinary perspective, illuminating core concepts of anatomy, physiology, and pathology that make drug therapy understandable to all nursing students. Organized around body systems and diseases, it clearly places each drug in context.

This edition contains new chapters on the nursing process and drugs for degenerative diseases and muscles; new Safety Alerts; new coverage of weight loss surgery and drugs; revamped NCLEX-PN questions; a brand-new glossary, and many other improvements.
