Medical-Surgical Nursing Flashcards

132 reviews


Medical-Surgical Nursing is at the heart of nursing. Our Medical-Surgical flashcards are designed to help nursing students, new nurses, or nurses studying to become a certified Medical-Surgical RN. They provide all the information you need to know to pass your exams (including the ATI, NCLEX, and HESI exams), and none of what you don't. Our consolidated flashcard format sets us apart.

Our Medical-Surgical Edition 2 flashcard deck includes:

  • Four Hundred (400) 3” x 5” flashcards split into three volumes plus cover cards for each section. Each card is durable, with a glossy front and a matte back for easy note-taking.
  • Flashcards organized by 10 body systems, including: Respiratory, Cardiovascular, Nervous, Musculoskeletal, Endocrine, Gastrointestinal, Renal, Reproductive, Immune, Integumentary
  • Key concepts highlighted in bold, red type
  • An expanded list of topics.

What's new in Edition 2?

Released in 2020, the Medical-Surgical Edition 2 is much BIGGER and BETTER than Edition 1. Edition 2 combines Medical-Surgical Nursing, Pathophysiology, and Critical Care. This "super deck" provides the key nursing concepts you need to know for each of these areas. There is a huge amount of overlap in the subject matter between Medical-Surgical Nursing, Pathophysiology, and Critical Care Nursing; therefore, we combined the material in an organized, easy-to-follow format in order to save you time and effort! Here’s some of what’s been added:

  • Three entirely new volumes
  • More diseases and disorders are covered
  • Many new hints (marked with a Cool Chicken!)
  • Cross-references to our other flashcard decks, including: Pharmacology Edition 2, Pharmacology Basics, Health Assessment, EKG Interpretations, and Lab Values
  • Anatomy & Physiology refresher to help you recall the overall structure and function of the body system, so that you can better understand the pathophysiology of each disorder/disease.
  • Focused, succinct Pathophysiology concepts
  • Complications and Critical Care topics

    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!

    Worth the price!!

    I am glad I made the purchase! These are a great tool to have for Med-Surg. These helped identify the more important information from the dense readings and power points. I would definitely recommend!

    Med surg flashcards

    I received my cards and they are great. Very good information on them. Some of the cards I will be adding some things that are not on them and my school teaches. I think these will be a big help too. I can pick out a few cards and carry them wherever I go and anytime I have a few minutes just pull them out and study instead of trying to lug my huge book around lol.
