Clear, step-by-step instructions guide students through accurate calculation and safe administration of drug dosages. Thousands of practice problems ensure that students gain proficiency, QSEN principles prioritize client safety, and an emphasis on clinical reasoning helps in preventing medication errors. New Next Generation NCLEX® (NGN) case studies help students improve their clinical judgment skills. With this popular text, students will learn to calculate drug dosages and administer medications with confidence.
