Here at NRSNG, we’ve asked the same question to every one of the 75,000+ blog subscribers we have –
By far the most common answer we get is – Pharmacology.
In the world of medications, there are literally thousands and thousands of different medications out there. While a few of the meds may sound similar, they are completely different from one another.
With so many meds comes an infinite number more complications and interactions between them.
“WHAT?!?! Why Am I Studying All Of Them Then?”
While the NCLEX exam is about 18% pharmacology, they tend to test on a central set of the most common medications over and over.
That central set is made up of around 140 of the medications that you learned about. Those are also the most common medications you’ll be administering as a floor nurse.
Anything above those 140 meds, and you are…
Another good question.
Without knowing which meds you will be tested on, you’re probably wasting on average 1-3 hours per week studying and memorizing medications you most likely won’t be tested on.
Those hours are free hours you could be…
The NRSNG team have collected, collated, cut down and simplified the 1,000s of potential medications out there into a single streamlined list of 140 medications that you’ll most likely be tested on.

As you probably already know, my name is Jon Haws RN BSN CCRN, and I’m the founder and lead teacher here at NRSNG.com.
This is the EXACT LIST of medications that I used and studied to:
After combing through practice tests, textbooks, learning material and study guides, I figured that the NCLEX exam only test on a handful of meds compared to the thousands that were out there.
If I just knew those meds really well, I could get most of the pharmacology questions right, without having to study for hours and hours extra that I didn’t really need to.
Don’t just take my word for it. The first version of this book is the
Since publishing the first edition, we have gone back through this book, cleaned things up, clarified the points that people were having problems with, and have come out with newer and better version.
Without this guide, it’s very clear that you’ll be spending hours and hours studying excess material that you don’t actually need to know for the exam.
But how much is that study time worth to you in dollar?
Well, let’s say that on average, you spend about 2 hours per week studying excess material that you don’t need to be. Over a 6 month span, that adds up to a total of 48 extra hours of studying.
The average hourly wage for a nurse around the country is about $32/hour, so that is right about what your time is worth.
So if you multiply the average hourly wage ($32/hr) by the total hours wasted (48 hours), you will have…
This doesn’t even count the hours your couldn’t be studying other subjects, relaxing, or just enjoying the college experience. What are those hours worth?
On training that will make your life much easier
Plus hours or precious time studying material you don’t need to be.
