This app is designed for the nursing student or beginning nurse to help learn concepts of pharmacology. It is organized by body system and by major drug categories. By learning common drug categories, the nurse can begin to recognize common considerations about all drugs within those categories. This may help enhance performance on the NCLEX licensure exam and will help nurses to recognize major considerations for each category. Each category of drugs is explained in simple terms using the nursing process. Included are common side effects, adverse reactions, rationale for use, nursing assessments, teaching, and drug names associated with each category. There is a search tab to look up over 200 drug categories and over 1775 individual drug names that might be used in various healthcare settings. Additional features include an extensive list of alternative agents and what they might be used for, pharmacology terminology that is necessary to understand how drugs work , common intravenous medications with information on how long to infuse over, step-by-step approach for calculations (oral, IM, IV, IVPB), and common conversions.
