  • Description

    Find complete monographs for more than 3,700 generic, brand-name, and combination drugs—including essential details on 63 NEW FDA-approved drugs—with important nursing and safety considerations for each and every one in the 41st edition of the Nursing2021 Drug Handbook.

    Monographs are consistently formatted for ease of use and focus on the practical information that nurses need. Each monograph consists of generic and trade names, pronunciation key, therapeutic and pharmacologic classes, controlled substance schedule (if applicable), available forms, indications and dosages, administration (with drug incompatibilities for IV drugs), action (including tables showing route, onset, peak, duration, and half-life), adverse reactions, interactions, effects on lab test results, contraindications, nursing considerations, and patient teaching.
