Trust Lehne's to make pharmacology more approachable! Known for its clear explanations of drug prototypes and how they work, Lehne's Pharmacology for Nursing Care, 11th Edition provides a solid understanding of key drugs and their implications for nursing care. A perennial student favorite, this book simplifies complex pharmacology concepts, using large and small print to distinguish need-to-know drug content from the material that's merely nice to know. It also includes in-depth coverage of physiology, pathophysiology and drug therapy. Written by noted nursing educators Jacqueline Rosenjack Burchum and Laura Rosenthal, this text helps you understand and apply pharmacology principles as opposed to simply memorizing drug facts.
