How to handle Pharmacology alongside with nursing classes?
- 0Jan 11, '13 by EMT89What tips do you have for studying? I just took a quiz in Pharmacology and nothing we went over in class was on it :/. I will be reviewing the Pharmacology Success book like crazy since I have a test that has to be taken by next Friday. For the 200 drug names that we have to know, I've started making note cards for them. I bought some dividers with letters to alphabetize them. I have sighned up for tutoring for all 3 nursing related classes. I am taking Pathophysiology as well, and not as worried about that one just due to the amount of times I have had the material -_-.

Memorize treatment, uses, side effects, etc. by drug class and don't focus on individual drugs. You are never going to be able to learn 200 drugs per test.

Attached are 12 Word documents which I made when I took pharmacology. All the information was based on the ATI study guide since that constituted the final exam in our class.
They are formatted as 3x5 cards and were printed on individual 3x5 cards.
Have at 'em if you think they'll help... they certainly worked for me.
Again, they are entirely my own creation based on the information out of the ATI book. I make no promises as to their accuracy (though I rocked pharm so they couldn't be too bad).
Feedback is welcome.
