Nursing Fundamentals covers the most important and commonly-tested concepts you have to know during the first semester of nursing school.
Nursing Fundamentals is designed to be the first class you’ll study when embarking upon nursing school. All other content introduced later on is built upon the foundations you’ll learn in this course, which means if you forget something, you may end up lost and confused. For this reason, it’s also important that you regularly come back to Nursing Fundamentals throughout nursing school to review what you learned in this initial course.
Nursing Fundamentals isn't always covered by nursing review courses because it’s sometimes considered elementary knowledge you’re expected to have. For example, it is crucial for nurses—throughout their careers—to understand labs, lab values, what they are, and how to interpret them. Yet this topic is only covered in fundamentals. So, it really is critical for you to have a strong foundation, which begins with a regular review of Nursing Fundamentals.

The ultimate content review for Nursing Fundamentals
Brainscape’s Nursing School Fundamentals crash course was developed by Justine Buick, “The NCLEX Tutor”, an experienced Registered Nurse and owner of KoaPine Tutoring & Test Prep. For years, Justine has worked with nursing students of all levels, helping them to study for, and pass the NCLEX-RN.
Through her work (and personal experience taking on the exam), she recognized how tough it is to retain the huge volume of nursing content throughout Nursing School. But in Brainscape—the world’s smartest flashcard app—Justine found the perfect study tool to make the job much faster and easier for nursing students everywhere.

How Brainscape helps you learn faster and remember for longer
The brain is hardwired to learn and remember information a certain way. The Brainscape™ flashcard app was born out of the question: what if we leveraged this hardwiring to help students learn more efficiently? Fueled by curiosity, our team of cognitive scientists from Columbia and Yale spent years developing a scientifically optimized learning platform to boost your learning.
Our "secret sauce" is a learning algorithm that delivers information to your brain in a way that optimizes its ability to retain that information. And it’s the spaced repetition of Nursing content at precisely the right interval for YOUR brain that makes Brainscape so effective for remembering the facts.
