Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Kathleen M Woodruff, DNP (Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing)
Description: This is a comprehensive, evidence-based resource for advanced practice registered nurses who prescribe medications. It covers practical issues related to prescribing, managing a difficult patient, and legal aspects of prescribing.
Purpose: The stated purpose is to provide advanced practice registered nurses (APRNs) with the information necessary to be a fully informed, rational, and ethical prescriber. The book is intended to assist advanced practice nurses to practice to the full extent of their expertise and education.
Audience: The audience should include students learning the role of the advanced practice nurse as well as new APRN graduates. Additionally, experienced APRNs can broaden their understanding of the aspects of prescribing with the use of this well-written, evidence-based resource.
Features: The first three chapters focus on the advanced practice nurse and prescribing — understanding the role, embracing the role, and creating an autonomous prescriptive environment. The next two chapters identify specific patient issues — the importance of patient assessment and monitoring. The appropriate use and documentation for controlled substances, as well as strategies for dealing with difficult patient situations are presented. The next chapter presents the issues related to pharmaceutical influence and legal concerns related to prescribing. The final chapter reviews concerns regarding cultural diversity and competence.
Assessment: This comprehensive resource is excellent for student, novice, and experienced advanced practice nurses. The book is intended to help APRNs adopt the role of prescribing with competence and expertise. The evidence-based data will help practitioners develop strong practices and provide patients with expert care.
