Exactly What I Needed

These cards are amazing and cover everything my teacher does in class! These along with the videos have been the best source material for OB that I’ve seen so far!!

Awesome nursing flashcards!

I like the breakdown of the Maternity flashcards and that they are color coded. I can take a colored stack and study each section. And I can review them over and over, instead of carrying a heavy textbook. The stages of pregnancy, the gestational ages, what to expect, the various test & procedures are all explained in detail. The different possible complications of pregnancy and how they are treated are also explained well. These flashcards are great! I highly recommend them to nursing students and licensed nurses who want to review and brush up on their knowledge of maternity nursing.

I am an RN with experience in critical care and the ED. I recently accepted a position in OB/ Maternity. I was anxious about how little I knew on the subject so I watched the YouTube videos and read the flashcards. They were so helpful and I didn’t feel unprepared for the start of orientation at all! Everyone is impressed with my knowledge base especially considering I didn’t have any OB experience.

Helped sooo much

I typically only watch the videos, but with maternity being my weak point I decided to get the flashcards. Definitely glad I did. The illustrations on the flashcards make a lot more sense than what is in my textbook, and they information is to the point. I also love that I can just take out the flashcards relevant to what we are currently going over to study on the go. You will not be upset you bought these. Some of my classmates saw mine, and they have now ordered their own sets.
