The authors are dedicating Pharmacology Success book to the Trinity Valley Community College Associate Degree nursing students, faculty, and staff. Without the support and encouragement of the faculty and staff Pharmacology Success book would not be possible.
The nursing students’ enquiring minds and thirst for knowledge challenge us daily to continue our own learning. We would like to thank Rob Martone for giving us the opportunity for our second Pharmacology Success book in the series and our appreciation goes to Barbara Tchabovsky for her editorial assistance.
Our sincere thanks go to Glada Norris for sharing her incredible computer skills in the process of preparing the Pharmacology Success book for the publisher. I would like to dedicate this Pharmacology Success book to Ruth, Ann, and Jan, Sue and Marvin and all the members of my family who have been by my side throughout the years.
Always in my heart is the memory of my husband, Bill, and my parents, T/Sgt. Leo and Nancy Hargrove, who are the rocks on which my life is built. I also thank and acknowledge my sisters, Gail and Debbie, my nephew Benjamin, and Paula for their support and encouragement.
My children, Teresa and Aaron, continue to amaze me as they enter their adulthood and remain the most important people in my life. Congratulations Aaron on your graduation.
