Known for its focus on drug safety, this handbook is compiled by Linda Skidmore-Roth, a well-known expert in nursing pharmacology, which means you will ALWAYS find the latest and most trustworthy drug information. An Evolve companion website includes profiles of several drugs commonly encountered in clinicals, vibrant animations of drug actions, comprehensive list of combination products, patient-teaching guides, clinical calculators, and more!
2014 Update includes 23 recently approved drugs.
This book was certainly useful for the PN program. However, this book is in high need for corrections. There were way too many errors in the back. The publisher has known about these, yet has not addressed/corrected them yet. Be forewarned.
This is a great reference. I had the digital copy made by the publisher and was not as happy. The hard copy is excellent especially for a nursing student and your care plans. I hope that it will last me for at least a few years, then I will upgrade to a newer version. Price was great and condition was excellent!
I’m not head-over-heels in love with this reference. The one thing I really like is the simplistic explanation of the mechanism of action. I tend to quote this to help patients understand their medications better as it’s more at a layman level than typical drug references. I would recommend this if you are just starting nursing school, as I think it would help you grasp the concepts of the meds better than wrapping your head around a normal professional level text, especially if you don’t have any medical background.
