Course review now. NCLEX-prep later. 1,000+ critical-thinking questions (both multiple choice and alternate format) organize the seemingly huge volume of pharmacology information you must master into manageable sections divided by body systems and specific diseases. You’ll not only learn to associate the medication with the disease process, making learning easier, but also be able to evaluate your knowledge before you take your exams.

All of the questions encompass the basic concepts of medication administration, including why the client is taking the medication…when the nurse would question administering the medication…how the nurse knows the medication is effective…and what interventions the nurse needs to teach the client concerning the medication.

See what students are saying about the Success Series…

Great book! “If you are taking pharmacology, you MUST get this book! It is amazing and helps prepare you for those critical thinking NCLEX style questions. Such a great buy, would recommend to ALL nursing students!”

—Samantha, Student Amazon Reviewer

A must-have for Nursing Pharmacology “This book is a must have for finishing nursing pharmacology! I wouldn't had been able to finish the class without this book & I did receive an A. Great questions with clear and concise rationales. I prefer the FA Davis Success Series to any other NCLEX test-prep books out there.”

—Nursing Student and Amazon Reviewer

"I love that the questions come with rationales and that the books are filled with relevant questions! Tons of people in my class use them and without fail we rave about them after each test!"

—Taryn Van Rensburg, Student Nurse, Naugatuck Valley Community College, CT.
