One of the easiest ways to remember a lot of the nursing topics and concepts while studying is to use a lot of Nursing Mnemonics…
What Are Nursing Mnemonics?
Mnemonics came from the Greek language meaning “memory aids”. And it’s actually one of the ways that helped me with my nursing studies and nursing exams. It’s fun and easier to remember. It also helps create “mental pictures” on your mind when memorizing. In this article, I’ve included the most common Nursing Mnemonics for studying. If you have other mnemonics that you’d like to share, please leave them in the comments below.
