Editorial Reviews

Laurel A. Eisenhauer
This book presents basic pharmacology for nursing students. Its unique feature is the extensive and predominant use of pedagogical approaches. The purpose is to provide the most up-to-date clinically relevant information on pharmacology and nursing in an appealing, understandable, and practical format. The content covers basic nursing and pharmacology information, but is limited in the depth of information or in explaining the why and the how of the pharmacology. Undergraduate nursing students, especially those at the associate degree level or those who can benefit from enhancing study skills, would be the primary audience. It probably also would be helpful to those for whom English is a second language because of the focus on pronunciation of glossary words and the useful orientation to content to be covered in a chapter or section. Pedagogical features include study skills chapters; learning objectives, outlines, and glossaries for each chapter; extensive use of multicolor diagrams; boxes on cultural implications, legal-ethical principles, and take-home points; critical thinking activities; patient teaching; and research abstracts. The extensive and effective use of color in the overall design is very effective; color photos and diagrams are especially noteworthy and contribute to visual learning for the student. This textbook should be very useful for students who need guidance and greater structure in learning and applying study skills in learning pharmacology. The extensive use of color on the cover and throughout the book makes the book very attractive and would appeal to most learners. Some of the pedagogical features (e.g., study skills briefs at the beginning of sections)vary in the approaches used and could confuse the student. The accompanying manual for students also uses different steps in study skills and thus could be either a source of confusion or a valuable resource, depending on the particular student.
Rosemarie Brager
This textbook offers nursing students a comprehensive overview of pharmacology and related nursing considerations. It is easy-to-read and has good aesthetic features. As pharmacology considerations and treatments change daily in the healthcare environment, it is almost impossible to keep pace with a text. This text does a fine job of trying to keep up with new drugs and not losing site of the classic ones. This book would be beneficial to nursing students in all levels (associate, diploma, BSN). All physiologic body systems are covered and serve as the model of review. A brief, although accurate and necessary, review of pathophysiology is given for each chapter. Many color tables, which are easy to read, are included. A special feature which is well-received is the inclusion of many "profiles." Each category of drug is profiled in a color-background box. This visual strategy is helpful to the student studying for exams. Although up-to-date information is usually covered (new generations of oral antidiabetic medications), the book is not perfect (low-molecular weight heparin is not covered). Also, it would have been helpful if all medications were described in generic and brand name terms. I am not very familiar with many pharmacology textbooks, although I teach nursing students clinically and in the classroom about acute care. I cannot think that there are too many other texts that offer the nursing student a better look at pharmacology. I recommend this book.
