Pharmacology is a notoriously difficult subject, particularly in nursing school where students must speed through the entire subject in just one semester. Despite the lack of time spent on the subject, the importance of pharmacology cannot be overstated. As we all know, medication errors can kill.
What makes pharmacology such a difficult subject? The sheer volume of information and lack of readily apparent connections. Shortly after initial exposure to pharmacology, students enter survival mode… which means they do their best to ascertain what will be on the exam and then focus all of their time and energy on memorizing that information. This is a mediocre short-term strategy and a horrible long-term strategy.
Heckman’s Nursing Pharmacology Simplified is here to help. Rather than overwhelm you with seemingly random lists of facts and acronyms, we carefully select key information and present it in a way that is logical and easy to digest. We emphasize core themes and focus on helping you make lasting connections. To ensure brevity and clarity, we tackle pharmacology one drug class at a time and limit the information to one page per drug class. The result is an extraordinarily high-impact pharmacology review. Written by a pharmacist to help nurses. It’s nursing pharmacology SIMPLIFIED.
