A drug a day email?

  1. I'm a nursing student, just past the NCLEX-PN and continuing on for the NCLEX-RN 1 year away. I am very challenged with the massive quanitity of information presented during class, especially learning drugs I find the hardest.

    Here's my though: I learn much better in bite size junks rather than shovels full of information. I hope I could learn drugs and retain them by picking up one new drug everyday, drug generic and trade names, use, and important drug info to know.

    Has anyone come across a "Drug A Day" email list server to sign up for?

    Any other ideas to learn the drugs would be appreciated.

    TIA :bowingpur

    How about making yourself a stack of flashcards, stash them in a desk drawer, and pull a new one out each day to add to your "working" stack?

    That way you'd eventually have the whole stack of cards, some of which are old and very familiar, same are newer, and they aren't all new and scary at the same time.

    I'm not a student anymore, but I would love to have a drug-a-day email. I hope someone can find one.

    I like the idea that one of the Nursing book publishers would sponsor a "Drug A Day" email list, since they already have accurate data, a bonus for the publisher is the free marketing to potential customers! Any Nursing Book Publishers listening?

    I think it would be great to have a "drug a day" calendar or email for nurses. I am an RN and since I am not studying all the time like I did in nursing school, I think it would be an awesome way to stay current and to help remember side effects, etc. If anyone knows of anything like this, let me know!!
