255 reviews


Our Pharmacology Flashcards are designed to help Nursing Students (or nurses transitioning roles) learn the most important medications. We provide all of the information you need to know to pass your exam (including the ATI, NCLEX and HESI pharmacology exams), and none of what you don't. It's our consolidated flashcard format that sets us apart.

Our Pharmacology Edition 2 flashcard deck includes:

  • One hundred seventy-five (175) 3” x 5” flashcards plus a cover card. Each card is durable, with a glossy front and a matte back for easy note-taking.
  • Expanded medication list color-coded by body system.
  • Major classes of medications, common prototypes, key side effects, and important nursing considerations.
  • An expanded list of medications and drug classes.

What's new in Edition 2?

Released in 2020, the second edition contains 175 flashcards plus a cover card and a complete drug index. It incorporates hints, tips and memory tools to aid learning and knowledge retention. Edition 2 was purpose-built as the same easy-to-use resource that focuses on just the information you need to know. Here’s some of what’s been added: 

  • Many new drugs
  • 125+ hints (marked with a Cool Chicken!)
  • Black box warnings

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!

I can’t say enough great things about these cards. You made an amazing product for nurses to learn and easily memorize tricky material. Im so so happy with this product. I was failed my first two pharm exams and after these cards I think I passed the third exam with a 90 or better. Amazing, game changer!!!!

Life saver!

I’m a junior in a BSN program and was trying to figure out how to organize and memorize different medications. As well as their MOA and side effects for my pharmacology class, a classmate recommended this deck and OMG! This is literally a life saver! The mnemonics are great and the deck is divided into different sections, not to mention each card is numbered and a table of contents is also provided at the end. Worth every penny, and I feel so much more confident in my studying techniques. Thank you Level up RN!
