This book provides advanced practice nurses with the knowledge needed for the understanding and integration of pharmacology into their clinical judgement. The emphasis is on adult care, both what to prescribe and what to monitor in ambulatory and primary care settings. Content focuses on those areas not fully covered in basic nursing pharmacology textbooks, or which are scattered throughout the medical and nursing literature. In addition, the book utilizes nursing-oriented case studies -- both simple (selected patient data leading to selection of drug, dose, route) -- and complex (complete assessments to allow the integration of nursing, medical, and pharmacological knowledge) which reinforce comprehension and sharpen clinical skills.
