Very helpful for RN school.
this soft bound large pharmacology "text" has a great concise way of explaining the pathways of the drugs as well as the nursing significance with examples. it comes with a cd that shows via video the process of the drug interacting in the body. i don't use the cd that much but use the text and end of chapter test questions all the time for the on-line nursing course.
Great Product!
I found this book to be the most asininely edited book I've ever had to read! This book is littered with error upon error and I have not been able to contact anyone who can assist me by providing an errata sheet(s). Essential formula notations are improperly printed, review questions are incorrectly, and so much of my time is wasted just trying correct what is wrong that I can no longer trust the book as being accurate. To me the book is utterly useless, yet the nursing program I'm enrolled in requires it.
I found it is the wonderful textbook for all nursing student and nurses to learn the pharmacology. The material for learn is design by way from simple to complex, with many NCLEX-RN style examination questions after each chapter. Plus the material about physiology and mechanism of action is very easy and interestedly to learn. I enjoy from this book.
This was a required text for my pharmacology nursing class. I personally think it's way too in depth for a nurse a lot of the stuff that i have read makes me feel like a pharmacy student. I do like the overall set up though. It reviews each system before it actually talks about the drugs in depth which sometimes the A&P review is helpful
Because it has the cd inside and it was affortable it has a cd inside that I like so much
Oops! Not very similar to the U.S. version which my classmates are using. I may have to work even harder to tread water in this class. Note to other potential buyers, if you are in the U.S. better to make sure you are getting the correct version.
