Amazon.com description: Product Description:

This Study Guide was developed for the Tenth Edition of Abrams’ Clinical Drug Therapy: Rationales for Nursing Practice by Geralyn Frandsen and Sandra Pennington. The Study Guide is designed to help you practice and retain the knowledge you’ve gained from the textbook, and it is structured to integrate that knowledge and give you a basis for applying it in your nursing practice. The following types of exercises are provided in each chapter of the Study Guide.

Learning Objectives

Each Study Guide chapter lists the Learning Objectives of the textbook chapter, to remind you of the goals of the chapter as you work your way through the exercises.

Assessing Your Understanding

The first section of each Study Guide chapter concentrates on the basic information in the textbook chapter and helps you to remember key concepts, vocabulary, and principles.

  • Fill in the Blanks. Fill in the blank exercises help you recall important chapter information by testing you on key points.
  • Matching. Matching questions test your knowledge of the definition of key terms.
  • Sequencing. Sequencing exercises ask you to remember particular sequences or orders, for instance testing processes and prioritizing nursing actions.
  • Short Answers. Short answer questions cover the facts, concepts, procedures, and principles of the chapter. These questions ask you to recall information as well as demonstrate your comprehension of it.

Applying Your Knowledge

The second section of each Study Guide chapter consists of case study-based exercises that ask you to apply the knowledge you’ve gained from the textbook chapter, which was reinforced in the first section of the Study Guide chapter. A case study scenario based on the chapter’s content is presented, and then you are asked to answer some questions, in writing, related to the case study. In addition to questions related to your knowledge of the drugs themselves, these case scenarios ask you to consider your nursing role in areas such as patient education and communication with physicians.

Practicing for NCLEX

The final section of each Study Guide chapter helps you practice answering NCLEX-style questions based on the content of the textbook chapter. The questions are scenario-based, asking you to reflect, consider, and apply what you know and to choose the best answer out of those posited. Some questions in the alternate format NCLEX styles are also included.

Answer Key

So that you can assess your own learning as you complete each chapter, the answers for all of the exercises in the Study Guide are provided at the back of the book.
