Pharmacology Online for Pharmacology and the Nursing Process, 9th Edition
Organized to match Lilley’s Pharmacology and the Nursing Process, 9th Edition, Pharmacology Online features a series of self-paced learning modules designed to enhance your understanding of pharmacology. This hybrid online course makes it easier for you to learn everything from basic principles to dosage calculation and more — all within the context of the nursing process and prioritization. Using a "key drug" approach, the course focuses on need-to-know content pertinent to the NCLEX® along with the latest clinical updates in areas of major new drug classes, new drugs and therapeutic uses, and discontinued drugs. To promote quality and safety in nursing, this course reflects the QSEN competencies highlighted in the textbook. In addition, unique Roadside Assistance videos use animations to explain difficult concepts, while case studies, care planning activities, and NCLEX® exam-style quizzes help you understand how drugs work and how to administer them safely in the clinical setting.
Duration for access to this product, which may be at the discretion of your institution, is up to 36 months. Elsevier reserves the right to restrict or remove access due to changes in product portfolio or other market conditions.
