This streamlined text provides the pharmacology principles that are necessary to prepare nursing students to safely administer drugs to clients across the lifespan and in a variety of health care settings. Designed for the shorter pharmacology course as well as for programs that integrate pharmacology throughout the curriculum, Foundations gives nursing students a solid alternative to the study of nursing pharmacology, by including a manageable amount of content in a streamlined style, using shorter and fewer chapters. Boxes and tables highlight and abbreviate key information, making the content more approachable.
