Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Shari J. Lynn, RN, MSN (Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing)
Description: This well written pharmacology textbook uses different modalities as well as pathophysiology to assist the reader in understanding pharmacology. It also makes use of NCLEX review questions as well as a CD-ROM.
Purpose: The purpose is to introduce and teach pharmacology in an understandable way that gives students the basic concepts of drug therapy so they can better understand individual drugs. The objectives of this book are worthy and meet the goals of the author.
Audience: According to the author, the book is written for nursing students and is written in a format that best addresses this audience.
Features: The book covers the physiology that the author feels will help the student understand how drugs affect the body. Case studies help the student understand the dynamics of drug therapy. The CD-ROM is helpful as a learning tool.
Assessment: This book helps the student realize how physiology works with drug administration to create the desired affect. The NCLEX questions are not only helpful in bolstering students' critical thinking, but also in giving the student some insight into what may be expected from them when taking the NCLEX.
