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 Med-Surg and help prepare them for the following exams:

Three ways to save on shipping
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 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!
I wish the cards had more catchy mnemonic
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.
I passed my first med surg exam. Three more to go. The flashcards really helped me along with the videos. Thank you!!
The cards are amazing! they help me to focus and remember important concepts, interventions and nursing care.
