Editorial Reviews

Barbara Van de Castle
This is a very detailed pharmacology textbook. It covers many areas in great detail with appropriately applied physiology. The nursing components are integrated throughout the text as well as summarized into nursing implications at the end of most chapters. Each chapter has a list of key points for review. The purpose is to establish a knowledge base in the basic science of drugs and to demonstrate application in the clinical area. The purpose is met, but more case studies for easier clinical application could have been incorporated. This book also strives to focus on the essentials needed in nursing care and downplays secondary details by utilizing different sizes of print. This makes it easier to scan a page for important information. The target audience is nursing students in a pharmacology course. The level of physiology and detail may or may not be appropriate for integrated curricula. It is an excellent clinical review and resource for practitioners and educators. The references were few and located in the text instead of at the end of each chapter, which makes them difficult to locate. The content appears complete; new sections include Pediatric Immunization, Drug Therapy Across the Life Span, and an appendix for Drug-Related Information on the Internet. This list of Internet sites is appropriate and a great resource for the learner. The disk provided has a drug database of 200 drugs and NCLEX review questions. The review is easy to use and provides feedback on correct and incorrect answers. The database is very small and requires the students to actually cut and paste a card together. This textbook is an excellent resource and is suitable for a pharmacologycourse.
