Pharmacology is such an important component in nursing school as medication management is super critical in caring for a patient!
Although pharmacology sometimes feels overwhelming….don’t worry, our pharmacology course provides you with videos, audio, handouts, and workbooks to meet all learning styles!
Start with Module 1 and work your way through the course. When you are studying a specific medication go directly to the mp3 for that med. If you are covering a class of medications, watch the lecture over that class. Soon, as you work through the modules you will find that pharmacology is becoming second nature.
With each lecture you are provided material for download, by downloading the information you will be able to study at any time and on any device. Feel free to stop a lecture without worry as each lecture and video will pick up right where you left off! Don’t forget to take a look at the freebies which are mentioned throughout the course in the last module!
As the nursing student you will be provided the framework to answer any NCLEX question thrown at you! By knowing these twelve points, regardless if you know the medication, patient, or question, you will be able to answer the question with confidence!
By learning the 54 Common Medications Prefixes and Suffixes in lesson 01.02, you will save yourself a ton of time and headaches when it comes to nursing pharmacology as a busy nursing student! Being able to work through prefixes and suffixes you will be able to identify a medication class, understand what it is given for, and also the contraindications.
In lesson 01.04, Essential NCLEX Meds by Class, you will be provided an overview of pharmacology questions, side effects of medications, among other things that commonly appear on the NCLEX. A strong understanding of medication classes will help you in every pharm related question you’re presented with both in nursing school and as a nurse.
