Handbook of Psychotropic Drugs for Nursing Students is comprehensive and written in simple language. It covers the psychotropic drugs that are available in Ethiopia. Nursing students and nurses will find it handy as a ready reference material, during clinical practice in the psychiatric wards. The specific nursing responsibilities will be useful for practising medication safety and the practical patient education points could be helpful in empowering their patients. The signs and symptoms of serious side effects of psychotropic medications with medical and nursing management have also been included. The authors Susan Anand, Worknesh Tessema and Liyew Agenagnew currently teaching in Jimma University, Ethiopia have vast experience in clinical practice as well as training students in Psychiatric Nursing. Their shared perceptions on the need for relevant instructional materials to help nursing students in their clinical practice have brought forth this combined effort.
