      Cool Chicken icon

      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 flashcards.

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