There is no possible way to study all the meds. I already had a good foundation in pharm (from being an LPN) so I did not study meds at all. I would say just know the most common med classes like: beta blockers, antibiotics, analgesics, and so on and their common side effects and what is the most important thing you would teach your patient about the med, and when giving or preparing what you need to know. Honestly do not get stressed about knowing all the meds. I only got asked about 5 med quetions on NCLEX-RN and they were ones I was very familiar with. However, I did get asked a few med questions on NCLEX-PN that I had never heard of and all you can do at that point is try to take your best guess, because again there are so many meds they can ask about.
