The book Lehne’s Pharmacology for Nursing Care is written by Jacqueline Burcham. Pharmacology permeates all phases of nursing practice and is directly related to patient care and education. However, despite its importance, many students, and even some teachers, are often uncomfortable with the subject. Why? Because traditional texts have emphasized memorization instead of comprehension.
In this text, the guiding principle is to establish a basic understanding of drugs, after which secondary details can be learned as needed. This text has two main purposes: (1) to help you, the nursing student, establish a foundation of knowledge in the basic science of drugs, and (2) to show you how that knowledge can be applied in clinical practice. The methods by which these objectives are achieved are described in the following sections.
