Overview

Mosby's Pharmacology in Nursing is the classic pharmacology text now made even better. Known for its comprehensive coverage of nursing pharmacology, the 22nd edition retains the strong nursing focus but now features a new student-friendly look in a case-study format to help students apply pharmacology concepts to real-world practice.

• Nursing process discussions include assessment, nursing diagnosis, planning, implementation and evaluation.
• Nursing care plans for selected drug groups illustrate the application of relevant nursing diagnoses, corresponding outcome criteria, and nursing interventions.
• Separate Disorders Index alphabetically references disorders in the text to aid in integrating the text with medical-surgical nursing course content.
• Drug reference tables summarize key pharmacologic information (mechanism of action, pharmacokinetics, dosages, etc.) and enhance the text's utility as a reference.
• Critical Thinking Questions at the end of each chapter help to reinforce key concepts; answer guidelines are included on the Evolve website.
• Provides pronunciation guides for generic drug names followed by U.S. and Canadian trade names. Canadian trade names are highlighted with a maple-leaf icon.
• Comprehensive index includes entries for every trade name, followed by the generic name in parentheses. Page numbers for drug monographs are highlighted in bold type.
• Highlights include Special Considerations for Children and Special Consideration for Older Adults boxes, Management of Drug Overdoses boxes, Cultural Considerations boxes, Pregnancy Safety boxes, Technology Link boxes, Complementary and Alternative Therapies boxes, and Community and Home Health Considerations boxes.

• Nearly 265 full-color illustrations show how drugs work in the body and depict key pharmacologic principles.
• Student CD-ROM includes 500 NCLEX®-style questions organized by chapter, drug mechanism animations, patient teaching handouts for commonly used drugs, and printable chapter summaries highlighting the key points in each chapter.
• Features a case study at the beginning of each pharmacology discussion, followed by a series of questions with answers that focus on nursing practice.
• New chapter on Medication Errors discusses contributing factors and practical methods that can be used to reduce medication errors.
• Helpful new features include Evidence-Based Practice boxes, Pharmacologic Issues in an Age of Terrorism boxes, Medication Safety Alerts, and Special Considerations for Pharmacogenetics boxes.
• Perforated, detachable Clinical Rotation Disorders Guide in the front of the book covers four clinical sections (med-surg, pediatrics, maternity, and psychiatric) and alphabetically lists disorders for which drugs are administered. Perfect for programs that integrate pharmacology into the curriculum.
• e-Learning Supplement boxes at the end of each chapter remind students of related content and exercises on the new student CD and Evolve website.

Incl. maternal & child drug therapy/adult & geriatric drug therapy/disorders index/etc.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Joyce B. Vazzano, BS, MS (Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing)
Description: This 21st edition pharmacology text contains updated information not only on major drug categories as they pertain to specific body systems, but also on the principles of pharmacology, the nursing process, and pharmacologic and biopsychosocial aspects of pharmacology. Information on over-the-counter and complementary and alternative medicines or therapies is also included.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide nurses with a sound basis for the clinical application of pharmacology. The focus in this book is on a sound understanding of the pharmacologic properties of major drug classes with clinical application through the use of the nursing process. Emphasis on pharmacology in the community is included. The book is divided into 20 units that begin with a chapter focus, followed by learning objectives and lists of key terms and drugs to enable students to focus on important material within each chapter. These are worthy objectives that I feel are met by the authors.
Audience: The authors are targeting both nursing students (as a text) and nurses (as a reference) with information about medications and their effects on patients of different ages in a concise, practical, and pertinent manner. In my opinion, the information presented is best suited for a student in a baccalaureate program. According to the information provided, the authors seem credible in this subject matter.
Features: In this comprehensive pharmacology text the authors begin with basic principles of pharmacology, including legal and ethical aspects of administering medications, the nursing process as it relates to pharmacology, cultural and psychological considerations when administering medications, alternative and complementary pharmacology, and they continue with in-depth information about drugs that affect specific body systems. There is an overview of each system, followed by particular medications with proposed nursing management, a summary, and critical thinking questions. I would like to see the answers to these questions written in the book (perhaps all in a section at the end of the book) so the reader can easily check his/her answers. Key drugs are highlighted in blue. Additionally, learning objectives and lists of key terms are presented in bold faced. A printed student learning guide is available, as is the MERLIN Web site.
Assessment: This clearly written text is intended for both nursing students and nurses. I feel it is written at an appropriate level for baccalaureate programs. It is an excellent reference for clinical practice also. The nursing process overview is a nice framework for applying pharmacologic knowledge to nursing practice. Each chapter has a summary of the presented information as well as critical thinking questions to aid the reader in applying the chapter material. I would prefer to see the answers to these questions written out so the reader can easily check his/her answers.

    Not my first choice for Pharmacology books

    This book is okay, but not what I expected. It gives you information from a nurses perspective, which is good if you are already a nurse. For a 1st year nursing student, I wouldn't recommend it. You have to really search and find what you are looking for becaue everything is in scenario form. Also there is not a good pharmaceutical glossary or reference.

    Excellent Pharmacology Book for Nurses!

    This is an excellent resource on pharmacology for nurses. The case study format puts the medications into real life situations. This helps tie pharmacology with medical surgical conditions. The tables and diagrams are great. I also like the review of the various body systems presented before the discussions of the drugs that effect these systems. The animations on the accompanying CDROM are helpful as well.
