Synopsis:

A must-have for every nursing student! Mosby's Drug Guide for Nurses, 9th Edition offers quick access to information on 50 drug classifications and more than 4,000 individual generic and trade name drugs. The newest NANDA-I nursing diagnoses help you write care plans; data on interactions and therapeutic outcomes help you prevent errors.

It includes a CD with profiles of 61 drugs commonly encountered in clinicals, patient teaching guides, over 350 NCLEX® examination-style questions, 30 clinical calculators, and more.
