    I Also Recommend:


    Working through this workbook and reading the coordinating chapters in Pharmacology for Nurses, has given me the knowledge and confidence I need to ace my exams and critically think through medication administration. This book will help you learn about the prototypes and the different adverse reactions/side effects, indications, action, pharmacokinetics, route/dosage, contraindications/precautions, and nursing considerations. It's worth the money if you're serious about learning pharmacology.
