Psychiatric Mental Health Nursing Flashcards

These flashcards will help you learn and digest the most important facts and concepts you need to know to be successful in your Psychiatric Mental Health class and exams. We will help you focus on what is MOST important, so that you can excel on your exams AND in your nursing practice.

Who can use these?

  • An RN or PN Nursing Student.
  • A new Psychiatric Mental Health nurse (or new to working on a psychiatric unit).
  • A practicing nurse that would like a better understanding of mental health disorders and treatments in order to better care for your patients.

Psychiatric Mental Health Nursing concepts are essential for ALL nursing students and nurses. 

Understanding Psychiatric Mental Health concepts will not only help you be better prepared for your exams, it will also help you be more successful in your clinical rotations and in your nursing career. 

You will regularly encounter patients with mental health concerns and disorders in every type of nursing environment. It is essential that nurses be able to effectively assess for mental health concerns, advocate for their patients, ensure patient safety (AND their own personal safety), and provide therapeutic communication.

Which Nursing Exams Do These Flashcards Help With?

We designed the Psychiatric Mental Health Nursing Flashcards to help nursing students on the following exams:

  • NCLEX and comprehensive predictor exams (e.g., ATI, HESI)
  • Nursing class exams

While in school, your nursing school exams will routinely include questions about therapeutic communication and mental health concerns. These questions won't just show up on your Psychiatric Mental Health exams… they will be on ALL of your nursing exams, including Medical-Surgical, Pediatrics, Maternity, and Nursing Leadership. These flashcards will help you build a strong foundation on key mental health concepts, so you can answer questions like, “What is the nurse’s best response to the patient?” in all of these contexts.

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!

Mental health flashcards

I can’t exaggerate how much I love these flashcards. When I need a quick review or if I’m burnt out from looking at the text or powerpoints, I’ll look at the flashcards. Cathy’s flashcards are my go-to. She literally signifies the most important stuff. I already know I’ll be purchasing more flashcards from her!

Level Up RN assisted me with passing the NCLEX in August 2020. In addition, these cards are extremely helpful for me as a Psychiatric RN. Thanks Cathy!!! Continue to be a blessing in the field.

It’s definitely beneficial!

I love them. There are a few questions that appear in class, that the cards miss at times. But I love how easy the wording is to understand. I love the bold text, the cool chicken hints and everything else!
