I believe every student would benefit from using this website from the beginning of your NP program! It truly makes every topic easier to grasp.
This website has been the difference between passing and failing in my NP program.
Picmonic has helped me while studying to be a Nurse Practitioner. I didn't think that I was a visual learner, but there is something about the pictures, story, and information that helps the info stick. I've used it in a variety of classes including Pharmacology, Health Assessment, and Women's Health. I only wish I had known about Picmonic sooner! I recommend it to anyone needing a break from the monotonous reading that can come with being a student.
Oh my gosh! I am so excited and HAPPY that I passed the ANCC Board examination for FNP!!
I definitely feel that using Picmonic was SO HELPFUL to remember many of the facts that I needed to know! Picmonic was helpful, in that the “really dry” information (you know… that stuff that makes you nod off mid-sentence?) was presented in a manner which kept my attention.
The Picmonics made remembering each point easy by hearing, seeing and imagining a similar memorable object. I am VERY THANKFUL that I accidentally came across this program!
I came across a YouTube video referencing the use of Picmonic to help learn pharmacology for NP. I did a trial with the free version. On my first quiz, I made an A because I was able to remember the information from the Picmonics!
I was skeptical about paying for a subscription for Picmonic when I already had to pay for my courses and books, but going into pharmacology I knew I needed all the help I could get and there were so many positive reviews. I have to say- it is worth it! As I'm currently studying for my Advanced Assessment final, it's even helping with that class. I could see myself keeping a subscription throughout my NP program.
Picmonic has been great for helping me remember details I was unable to remember before in NP school. Utilizing spaced repetition was researched and proven to help with retention. Picmonic is not only an educational tool, but it is also entertaining and this keeps me motivated to keep logging in every single day of my nurse practitioner program!
Picmonic has been a big reason for my success in NP school. I can study in line at the grocery store. I was using it to study when my son ended up unexpectedly admitted to the hospital, I had an upcoming exam and no other way to study. It has helped me learn key identifying facts that have helped in scenario based exam questions. I anticipate using it through the final year of NP school and to study for boards!
I needed a framework for storing and applying all the information from my NP program and Picmonic has provided that. Also, the spaced repetition and the ability to customize my daily quizzes is where the money is at. I flunked a pharm test and with the help of using picmonic I was .7 points away from an A on the following test!
