More than HESI Flashcards

The biggest exam of your life is just around the corner, and you’re doing your best to prepare. Highlighters in every color, coffee for days, the perfect motivational playlist, and stacks-on-stacks of HESI flashcards. Aren’t you sick of flipping over those 3×5 note cards?

Rote Memorization… As Boring as it Sounds

Whether you’re creating your own HESI flashcards or flipping them electronically with a study app, chances are the repetition and rote memorization is as ineffective as reading with your eyes closed. That’s where Picmonic steps in. Picmonic provides nursing students with an interactive online learning solution that combats the ineffectiveness of traditional study methods. It offers students an option that is lightyears ahead of other HESI flashcards — there’s nothing two-sided about Picmonic.

Get Interactive

Each Picmonic takes the facts you have to know about a specific topic for nursing school and turns them into unforgettable characters linked together in a story. Students have referred to the effectiveness as “life-changing” and “amazing” because the cards really work. The list of critical, must-know information for each card contains individual definitions, in addition to a comprehensive topic overview. But wait–there’s more! You can put down the highlighters and pens because Picmonic lets you take notes on each topic to come back and review later, and even discuss the topics and images with other Picmonic users and HESI test takers.  Have you been paying attention so far? Let’s see. Picmonic offers:


It’s not a trick question. While your friends are stowed away in the library flipping through their dull HESI flashcards, you’ll be wowing your class (and hitting your goals) with everything you can recall on the spot.

More than 300,000 students have already started learning faster, easier, and more effectively with Picmonic. You should be next! It’s more than memorization, more than mnemonics, more than flash cards. Picmonic is a truly interactive experience that allows you to gain a deeper understanding of the most important exam topics and master them forever.
