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!

These flashcards were so helpful! I tried them out and got 100% on my quiz! So easy to read and love the mnemonics.

I was really struggling with connecting the dots of pharmacology until I ordered the flashcards. The clever ways to remember certain medications really helped and I feel much more confident! I have an exam next week and I'm actually looking forward to it, instead of wanting to lock myself in the closet and never come out!

Thank you so so much for the creation of these flashcards. This last exam I had to get a good grade on or else I wouldn’t pass pharmacology. I’m seriously blown away by how good I did on this exam and I put all my faith into your flashcards. Can’t thank you enough.

The pharm flashcards are amazing. The Cool Chicken tips are so helpful and actually helped me with my pharm final! The exam before my final I got a C, and then I got these cards. Just got my final grade back and I got a B+! Very helpful and definitely recommend!
