Pharmacology: Connections to Nursing Practice recognizes that pharmacology is not an academic discipline to be learned for its own sake, but a critical tool to prevent disease and promote healing of illness. This connection to patients, their assessment, diagnoses, and interventions, supports basic nursing practice. Like other core nursing subjects, the focus of pharmacology must be to teach and promote wellness for patients.

Pharmacology: Connections to Nursing Practice identifies key pharmacologic concepts and mechanisms and clearly connects them to current nursing theory and practice for providing optimal patient care.
