Description : Emphasizing safe and effective drug administration, Introduction to Clinical Pharmacology, 10th Edition, helps you understand the principles of pharmacology and prevent medication errors. It promotes safety by showing how drugs and drug classes work, so you can understand why drugs are given, as well as the adverse effects and drug interactions that may occur. A thorough nursing process section with each drug class outlines the nurse’s role when administering drugs. The updated Get Ready for the Next Generation NCLEX® Examination! feature offers case studies with Next Generation NCLEX-format questions to help you prepare for the new licensure examination. Ideal scope of content and readability for LPN/LVN programs includes basic, need-to-know pharmacology content.

Video clips on medication administration procedures provide students with a visual reference for safe medication administration.
