Pharmacology Mnemonics for the Family Nurse Practitioner PDF Free Download

The book Pharmacology Mnemonics for the Family Nurse Practitioner is written by Nachole Johnson. There is a lot to learn while you are in nursing school. Due to time pressure, I really appreciated anything that would help me get through school. I have always been a visual learner, and it is easy for me to pick up information if I draw pictures or play with words to facilitate the learning of a complex subject. I loved using mnemonics when I was in nursing school, and that continued when I went to graduate school for my Family Nurse Practitioner degree.
I found that it was easy for me to remember silly sayings during the test that would remind me of the correct answer. Turns out a lot of other people like mnemonics too! I decided to write a book specifically for the field of nurse practitioners. The Pharmacology Mnemonic for the Nurse Practitioner is a general guide to pharmacology, which means it will help you no matter your specialty. It’s a bit of a cross between what you’d expect from a book for nurses and one aimed at doctors.
