Picmonic has really helped me remember signs, symptoms, and lab values. A lot of times textbooks can have extra information that won’t come up on a test and Picmonic really helps pick out the important points to know. Picmonic is very very helpful and an efficient way to remember/study.

I absolutely love Picmonic. This program has helped me from anatomy, to my HESI exam, and still through nursing school. I have repeatedly told my classmates to use Picmonic. Those of us that used it, had such an easy time on our last exam with Erickson's psychosocial development. Thank you for everything Picmonic!

I passed my NCLEX in 75 questions this week and I am super grateful for finding out about Picmonic, only wish I had known earlier in my nursing school program, it would have saved me so much time. I had fun studying with Picmonic. The short educational videos are entertaining and it helps things stick in your mind, the quizzes help reinforce what you’ve learned.

Thank you Picmonic! ️♥️
