Pharmacology, 7e by Hitner/Nagle is incredibly readable, with short chapters that link theory to practice; content that is focused on the need-to-know information to not overload the reader; excellent tables and features such as Patient Administration and Monitoring Boxes; and the most up-to-date drug information. This new edition features revised Learning Outcomes for each chapter, with a more streamlined chapter structure to reflect those updates. Chapter reviews have been revisited to more closely mirror typical exam formats, and a variety of additional exercises are available on Connect Plus. The full suite of instructor materials is available. Hitner 7e has Connect Plus, including LearnSmart: Pharmacology, SmartBook, body system and pharmacology animations, dosage calculations exercises, and more.
