Does learning pharmacology just make you more confused?

Review key pharmacology concepts and drug classes on-the-go with Fast Pharmacology.


Most instructors make pharmacology overly complicated.

The truth is, pharmacology is a complex topic but it doesn't have to be taught in an overly-complicated way. Most nursing curriculums OVER teach pharmacology, which leaves you feeling like you have to memorize a million random facts in order to pass exams. Not only is this exhausting, but, in most cases, it's actually a waste of time. 

When you understand the foundations of drug classes and why drugs do what they do, the rest of pharmacology falls into place.

I created Fast Pharmacology so that you could bridge the gap between being taught pharmacology and actually understanding it. These lessons focus on the "need to know" information so you can feel more confident administering medications as nurse or nursing student.



Fast Pharmacology is an audio-based program that explains pharmacology concepts and more than 80 drug classes in lessons that are five minutes or less! Listen on-the-go with the podcast version, or log in online to browse by category, take quizzes, and download transcripts.

Hi there, I'm Nurse Mo.

In case we haven't already met, it's great to meet you!

I’m Maureen, but my students call me “Nurse Mo.” I’m a nurse, educator, podcastor and founder of Straight A Nursing. I’ve been a nurse since 2011 and have helped thousands of students thrive in nursing school and beyond.

My bedside experience spans MICU, TNICU, and PACU. And my teaching experience is centered on creating online programs and weekly lessons on the Straight A Nursing podcast and website.

I'm thrilled that you are here! 💕
