Tips for learning meds

  1. I am a relatively new nurse (2 years experience) going from an acute specialty floor to a mainly med/surg floor at a much smaller hospital. I was fairly familiar with the standard meds I used to give but now I will be giving many more meds, most of which are new to me. Any tips on getting a handle on these meds besides time? Thanks in advance!

    No real shortcut. It will take writing them down and maybe looking them up at work or home if needed. Afterawhile you will know them by heart.
