A Truly Outstanding Text

Lehne would win the favorite textbook award by acclamation at my nursing school. The text is clear, concise and incredibly well written. The author reviews relevent physiology, lays out the classes of drugs and explains how each works, usually by examining a prototypical drug in each class followed by briefer reviews of other similar drugs. Each chapter ends with a "Key Points" section which is probably the best chapter summary I have ever seen in a text. Then, a "Summary of Major Nursing Implications" puts it all into clinical practice. If anyone had told me my favorite book in Nursing School would be my Pharmacology text, I wouldn't have believed them, but it's true. The author even has a sense of humor. If you have to study pharmacology this is THE text to use. Richard Lehne deserves an award, not to mention the undying gratitude of nursing students everywhere, for producing such a truly outstanding, useable and friendly text.

Awesome! A must have!

Although this book is made for nursing, I found it extremely insightful. I am a Physician Assistant & I would recommend it to ANY healthcare provider!

extremely well written, helpful textbook

I have to say that this is one of the best text books I've ever had to buy! It's well written, well organized, and thoughtfully prepared. The author presents what might otherwise be very confusing and complicated ideas, and makes them straightforward and easy to understand. Best of all, I actually ENJOY reading this text. Yes, that's right, I enjoy reading about pharmacology! By making the concepts understandable, he makes the whole topic of drugs and their affects on the body interesting. What could be better than that?

A Must Have

The new 4th edition of this book just keeps getting better and has a great chapter on alternative drugs added for this edition. The authors strive to make the information understandable and meaningful. This book is actually good reading for student nurses through advance practice nurses. The new study guide is also an improvement along with the web enhanced materials. The science is first rate and the material makes sense. Priorities are defined for drugs using the prototype format which enhances learning of the really important material.

Pharmacology for Nursing Care

Excellent reference book for drugs and their effects on the body. Good, basic pathophysiology of the systems, their disorders, and the drugs used to treat them. Best book of this type I have found in 25 years as a nurse.
