FAQs

Pharmacology is the study of the origin, chemistry, and uses of drugs and their effects on the body. Pharmacology in nursing school requires you to apply your prerequisites, such as physiology, microbiology, chemistry, and psychology.

The best way to succeed in your Nursing Pharmacology class is to combine different learning modalities: First, deep-dive into the topics with video lessons and master the key concepts with Lecturio’s concise cheat sheets. Next, apply what you’ve learned to practical situations by answering clinical case questions in the Qbank. Lastly, make sure you retain information long-term by regularly reviewing your knowledge with Spaced-Repetition quizzes.

In your pharmacology course, you will gain an understanding of why and how drugs are essential for nursing practice. You will learn what a particular drug was created for, how it works inside the body, how it affects the body, and also how to master dosage calculation.

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.
