    You might want to check out hte websites listed under the sticky "websites"


    Also, I have found the greatest help to me has been

    Memory Notebook of Nursing (Vol. 1 & 2 )

    Here are the ISBN's for each of them

    0-9628210-8-X

    1-892155-01-X

    These two books were created by nurses for nursing students! Each page is a different picture with mnemonics to help you learn!


    I love them!! Each module we study has had at least one thing that I have studied from the memory books!!

    Good luck!

    I just wish I would have had a computer when I was in nursing school. Would have made things so much easier. But they did not even have much internet when I was in school. Boy have things changed in the past 17 years.

    I have that program on my palm. I love it because I can study it while my kids are in TaeKwonDo or sitting in the parking lot at their school - very useful!

    Disabled - I know what you mean, I started nursing school in 86 (before the internet), got married in 87 and dropped out, and now starting again it is sooooo much easier with computers!

    All Hail Bill Gates! :roll (Just kidding)

    MONA for chest pain/MI
    M:morphine
    O:Oxygen
    N:Nitro
    A: Asprin
