Which Nursing Exams Do These Flashcards Help With?

Cathy Parkes, BSN, RN, CWCN, PHN in collaboration with a number of other nurses and nursing resources, designed this flashcard deck to help nursing students master what they need to know for Pharmacology and help prepare them for the following exams:

  • ATI and HESI comprehensive predictor exam
  • Applicable classroom exams

The Legend of Cool Chicken

Have you heard the legend of Cool Chicken? It is our most memorable (and talked about) memory aide. As it turns out, nursing material is a lot more fun to learn when you make up silly stories to "explain" the concepts.

This wacky hint has its origin in our Pharmacology videos!

Colchicine is a medication used to treat an acute gout attack.


HINT: Colchicine kind of looks like 'cool chicken'.

Guy to his friend with a chicken: "Hey man, cool chicken. OUCH! Your chicken just pecked and cut my gouty toe!"

The Level Up RN community loved this hint, and it was the reason we started adding more hints to our flashcard decks.

The Cool Chicken highlights a silly memory device that makes it easier to learn the material you need to know!

NOTE: These pharmacology flashcards are not intended to replace a comprehensive drug reference guide.

Pharmacology flash Cards for Nursing Students

I'm a LPN Student adjusting to our our New Norm because of the COVID-19, And we know have to do our classes and test online which is 20x harder for me. I've been my using my Level up RN Pharmacology Flash Cards for Nursing Students Relentlessly along with my Studies and they've been a huge help. I'm looking to purchase more items in the feature. Thank You Cathy and Your Team!

I absolutely LOVE these cards. They are simple, to the point, and do a great job at stressing the important things to do about certain meds. This has been extremely helpful in preparation for the NCLEX exam. Following along with the YouTube videos and cards is even MORE helpful. It's a little confusing with the new 2020 cards and old videos, but I was able to figure it out! Just a little out of order! HIGHLY RECOMMEND THESE CARDS. Thank you Cathy!!
