Editorial Reviews

Review

"Written by nurses, this book includes pharmacological concepts and puts them in the the context of primary care nurse prescribing. Although this is an American text, much of the content has relevance to primary care nurses and students in the UK. " Nursing Standard, November 2009

I used this book in my pharmacology class last semester. It is very well organized and easy to use. It provides all of the vital information for the top-prescribed drugs. I sold back all of my other books but I am keeping this one for future reference.

Excellent text and easy to read compared to my other Pharm book. Useful charts but not one you would use as a reference to write prescriptions.

Pros:
- basic
- helpful as a reference
- easy to understand
- organized
- includes standard guidelines, key considerations, therapeutic overview

Cons:
- all your questions will not be answered in this book (I took a pharmacology class and had to use outside sources)
- not thorough, especially with drug interactions

I personally expected more as a book recommended for my class, but it served it's purpose incorporating as much pertinent information as possible without being overwhelming.

Goes in depth with every topic as well as the pathophysiology and the treatment of every disease. Specifies what the most common drugs used in each class are and gives good adverse effects for each. Very helpful for supplementation.

Had to get this for my Advanced Pharm class. Found the text easy to read and flowed well. Enjoyed that it gave a broad overview of many of the classes then pulled out specific information on common medications.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book provides the NP student with essential information about pharmacotherapeutics for primary care. Clearly, the text is not an in-depth treatment of pharmacology; however, it is well organized and up-to-date. This book should not be used as the sole source for the student who is learning about pharmacotherapy for primary care. No one resource should ever be used during graduate/doctoral education relative to a specific topic. Moreover, no one course is going to provide the student with all of the information he or she will need during clinical practice. Overall, this text provides a good foundation for further study.

Note:

I am amazed at the number of NP students who complain about books. GROW UP!! If you are in graduate school you should know that one cannot rely on a single text for any particular subject. You must learn from multiple books, journal articles, etc. There is no perfect text...adapt and learn to glean information from various sources. Part of the reason why NPs are not taken as seriously as they should be is because some NPs (in training mostly) whine and complain about the education process and the texts that are used. If you want to be taken seriously by MDs, scientists, etc., then stop complaining and start engaging in the real world of academia!!
