I am currently on break before my next semester of nursing school. The two classes that I have are: Health Promotion Across the Lifespan
and Adult Nursing I
. In addition to preparing for these classes, I'd like to start learning a few drugs.
I came across the top 100 drugs (according to drugs.com). Can someone give me any advice on the best way to approach learning these drugs? Right now, I'm focusing on the brand name, generic name and major points. Here's my on-going list: http://docs.google.com/View?id=drvvnmg_111dtp3xbc7
Any advice will be greatly appreciated.

Are you seriously trying to learn all of these drugs from a website?? My goodness, you will be burned out before school even starts.... I know you are trying to get prepared, however i think you are going about it the wrong way. I looked at the website you posted and you are not going to benefit from remembering all of those drugs at once. Here is a list of the most common drugs that I have encountered over the last 1 1/2 yrs.....
ALL Insulins (peak, onset and duration)
-Calcium channel blockers
***This list is NOT all inclusive, it is just what i could remember off the top of my head***
Some important points to remember for meds are..
