looking for a mnemonic for nerves

  1. I have an Anatomy test on Tuesday and it covers the heart, the arteries & veins, the lymphatic system, and the nervous system. The main nerves that we need to know are the following:
    Olfactory
    Optic
    Oculomotor
    Trochlear
    Trigeminal
    Abducens
    Facial
    Vestibulocochlear
    Glossopharyngeal
    Vagus
    Accessory
    Hypoglossal
    Any ideas would be helpful. Thanks, Kimberly

    Hey Kats,

    Someone posted this question over a month ago and got a lot of good responses.

    Here is the address
    http://allnurses.com/forums/showthre...ghlight=nerves

    Not sure if you will be able to access it or not. If not, it was posted on 3-01-02 by Tiggur and was titled A&P help....kind of.

    Good Luck!

    OK, so our class was a bit on the "naughty" side when we came up with our mnemonic:

    Oh, Oh, Oh To Touch A Fresh Virgin Gives Victor A Hard-on.

    I passed all my A&P tests!!

    In order to remember the functions of the cranial nerves: Here's a saying that I use......Each beginning letter stands for: S= sensory, M= motor, and B= both. Each word goes with the corresponding cranial nerve.

    "Some say marry money but my brother says bad boys marry money"
