Pharmacology is one of the most difficult courses in nursing school. With the goal of knowing hundreds of medications along with their indications, contraindications, side effects, dosing, and much more, you first really need to examine what information is essential for you to learn to care for patients and pass the NCLEX®.
3 helpful tips for reviewing pharm:

  • Learn the prefixes and suffixes: If you know something about the group in general, it may be enough information to answer an NCLEX® question.
  • Have multiple study methods: You should be reading, listening, watching, discussing, practicing calculations, and teaching others.
  • Take shortcuts when you can because the volume of information is really high.
  • Take Lecturio’s NCLEX® Practice Questions.

When answering pharmacology NCLEX® questions, keep these tips in mind:

  • Which answer option will lead to your patient being safe?
  • Learn the top 3 side effects with major medication classes
  • Focus on the nursing process and the ABCs with each and every question (Airway, Breathing, Circulation).
  • Learn the most common prefixes and suffixes
  • Use general clues in the question about the patient, their history, and their condition. These clues will guide you to the medications they will be taking.
