Help your students master an understanding of pharmacology — and apply that understanding to nursing practice! Lehne's Pharmacology for Nursing Care, 12th Edition makes it easier to understand difficult pharmacologic principles and the clinical use of drugs. The book discusses physiology and pathophysiology for each of the major drug families, using drug prototypes to simplify learning. It focuses on the most important content, limiting discussions of drug interactions and adverse effects to those that matter most. Known for its uniquely clear, engaging approach, Lehne emphasizes the understanding of drugs and drug therapy as opposed to simply memorizing drug facts.

    • NEW! Updated drug content includes the latest FDA drug approvals, withdrawals, and therapeutic uses, along with updated nursing content.
    • NEW Transgender Health chapter covers gender-affirming hormone treatment for transgender patients.
    • NEW! The six cognitive skills of NCSBN’s Clinical Judgment Measurement Model are integrated into the Application of Pharmacology in Nursing Practice chapter and in Summary of Major Nursing Considerations tables.

    • NEW! Updated COVID-19 content addresses the latest vaccination information and pharmacotherapeutic implications.
    • NEW coverage of CBD and expanded coverage of medical marijuana discusses the growing use of these substances.

    • Clear, engaging writing style simplifies complex concepts, making difficult pharmacology content not only understandable but actually enjoyable.
    • Prototype Drugs approach focuses on representative agents that characterize all members of a given drug group, so that students can apply their understanding to related drugs that are currently available and those that will be released in the future.
    • Nursing implications of drug therapy are integrated throughout the text to show the relationship between drug therapy and nursing care, and also recapped in Summary of Major Nursing Implications sections at the end of chapters.
    • Special Interest Topic boxes examine the everyday impact of pharmacology with engaging vignettes such as Vaping and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus-2 (COVID-19) Vaccine.
    • Large print highlights essential, need-to-know information, and small print indicates nice-to-know information.
    • Safety Alerts call out important safety concerns related to contraindications, adverse effects, and more.
