About the Author:

Anna Curren has been writing inspired clinical textbooks for more than 40 years. A nurse and former Associate Professor at California's Long Beach City College, she first wrote this text when the one she was using bore no resemblance to her students' clinical needs. Her graduate degree in instructional design, along with many student and instructor reviews, helped her create what is now the most adopted text on the subject. Also a successful entrepreneur, Ms. Curren founded Wallcur, Inc., a company which produces instructional products, including Injecta-Pad, Practi-Amp, Practi-Insulin Training Pack, and other learning resources. Ms. Curren also wrote the best-selling Dimensional Analysis For Meds, also by Cengage Learning.

Margaret Witt is a nurse and physical therapist with more than 26 years of experience, including in the operating room and as a flight nurse. A retired Major in the US Air Force, Dr. Witt spent many years instructing and evaluating flight nurses, as well as writing, reviewing, and enforcing nursing regulations. She is currently Head and Coordinator of the Rehabilitation Department at Spokane Veterans Administration Hospital in Washington. Hand-picked by Anna Curren to lead future editions of CURREN'S MATH FOR MEDS: DOSAGES AND SOLUTIONS, Dr. Witt contributes unrivaled professional experience and training to this always popular book.
