Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I bought this for my nursing pharmacology class. It includes action, uses, nursing implications, adverse effects, patient teaching, interactions, trade and Canadian drug names, contraindications, pharmokinetics, and proper dosages. It was written for nursing students. Thats to say that the language wasn't overly scientific, but understandable and easy to follow. I bought mine in store and it also came with a CD ROM thats awesome for so many other supplemental things to pharmacology. There are some drugs missing but that was something I anticipated and was pleasantly surprised that all of the main drugs for each class are included plus some. Total of over 400 cards and the first group are all just drug classifications. Can't stress enough how awesome these cards are.
