    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This class is mandatory for nursing majors, so there isn't a choice whether we can take it or not. However, while the material is challenging it is crucial to our future careers, and understanding pharmacology will lead to your success as a future nurse.

    Course highlights:

    This course walks through different classes of drugs, as well as side effects, nursing implications, indications for use of these drugs, and more. It does not delve into the chemistry of the medications (which I appreciated!) and focuses on nursing aspects of medication administration. Registered Nurses are not prescribers, but we are responsible for understanding the basics of pharmacology to keep our patients safe when administering medications.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    If flash cards work for you, they are a great study tool for this class. A lot of this material is broken down into drug classes, so understanding the group of drugs makes it easier rather than memorizing each drug individually. Attend office hours and don't be afraid to ask questions! This material is tough and everyone is in the same boat, engage with the professor and you will benefit!

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Definitely would recommend taking this course with Dr. Quinn. She is very intelligent and really wants her students to succeed. Although, she does go over her power points pretty fast but she is good about making sure we understand the content and the importance of knowing our meds.

    Course highlights:

    By taking this course, my knowledge about the different kinds of medications grew! She provides NCLEX practice questions that helped me tremendously for her exams and the HESI that we have to take at the end of each semester.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Start studying early!!! There are so many things you need to learn and the best thing to know them all for the exams is to study her ppts after each class so that the content is still fresh in your mind!

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It is a required course that you will need in the future. You need to know the drug interactions for patients and what each drug does. Your patient's life is in your hands and they trust you to give the best care.

    Course highlights:

    The course cramped in as many drugs as possible into one semester.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure to study every week because it is hard to cramp all the information in within one week before an exam. There is a lot of information to retain so study bits and parts each week. It will help you retain everything in the end.
