Im going with a more narrowed approach though and just learning drugs particular to my unit. I figure, I already studied drugs as much as possible for the NCLEX so now Im going to focus my efforts on more related meds.
good luck to you

I would learn the common meds that always seem to be used on most ward environment's e.g. the analgesia's, antibiotics etc & As carebear said, the drugs relevant to your area of care whether it be cardiac, respiratory etc . Best of Luck!!

I would stay focused on where you are working... like women's health meds are totally different than med/surg meds which are usually different than ped meds.
If you let me know where you are working I'll tell you which ones I see most in that area... but as the others said, it is best to know those most prescribed according to a resource since I think specific drugs vary somewhat between facilities (ergo, it's essential to know classes of drugs and their physiologic effects...i.e., pharmacologic mechanism of action!)
