Would you like a new approach to teaching pharmacology to undergraduate nursing students? Check out our ground-breaking new text, Pharmacology for Nurses by Blaine T. Smith. Even better, each new print copy includes Navigate 2 Advantage Access that unlocks a comprehensive and interactive eBook with numerous animations, student practice activities and assessments, a full suite of instructor resources, and learning analytics reporting tools.
Pharmacology for Nurses presents the complex topic of pharmacology to undergraduate nursing students through its concise, yet digestible coverage of the material, overall design, and use of images and tables to reinforce content. It also draws on a vast array of pharmacology teaching experience and knowledge from top nursing faculty.
In fact, nursing instructors are already seeing the difference that Pharmacology for Nurses makes in their teaching. According to Jim Harris, MSN, RN, PhD, from the Goldfarb School of Nursing at Barnes-Jewish College,
"I have been teaching using a concept-based approach with a textbook that is strictly drug classification-based. I've developed advanced organizers for pharmacology students, and some active learning activities, but these lack a certain level of integration. Now with [this] product I can present in a more integrated manner and teach conceptually from the textbook and of course from practice."
