Dimensional analysis can simplify drug calculations! Mulholland’s The Nurse, The Math, The Meds, 5th Edition helps students overcome any math anxiety they may have by clearly explaining how to use the dimensional analysis method to minimize drug calculation errors. First, a review of basic math provides a refresher of essential math skills. The book then shows how to analyze and set up problems, estimate a reasonable answer, and evaluate the answer for accuracy. The only Elsevier text to exclusively teach the dimensional analysis method, Mulholland’s includes plenty of practice exercises as well as new Next Generation NCLEX® (NGN) case studies to prepare students for the NGN exam.

    • UNIQUE! Useful FAQs and answers in each chapter are based on years of classroom questions compiled by the author.
    • UNIQUE! Communication boxes show sample nurse-patient and nurse-prescriber dialogues that can help reduce medication errors.
    • UNIQUE! Ask Yourself questions help you synthesize information and reinforce your comprehension.
    • Rapid Practice quizzes provide practice problems following each new topic, making it easy to master both math concepts and drug calculation at the same time.
    • Mnemonics offer shortcuts to make memorization easier, and save time in learning.
    • Red arrow alerts call attention to potential math errors and patient safety issues.
    • High-risk drug icons are used to highlight potentially dangerous drugs.
