Why Brainscape Nursing School prep is different.

Watch intro video

Given the mind-body connection, mental health is an incredibly important subject that, until recently, healthcare professionals didn’t pay sufficient attention to. Now that we know how intricately linked our mental and physical health are, it’s crucial to learn the facts so that you can offer effective and empathetic care to patients.

Brainscape’s Mental Health Crash Course covers both basic therapeutic communication and common mental health problems, empowering learners to recognize the signs of anxiety, depression, and other mental health issues while communicating effectively to inspire trust and confidence.

The ultimate content review for Mental Health Control

Brainscape’s Mental Health 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.

Master facts quicker with Brainscape’s Nursing flashcards

Brainscape’s flashcards provide a review of the most important and commonly tested topics in Mental Health: addictions, psychiatric medications, and more.

All of this information has been distilled down into neatly organized question-and-answer flashcards, many of which include illustrations for greater (and faster) understanding. By eliminating the inessential content and streamlining your learning with our proprietary learning algorithm, Brainscape saves you hours of study time.

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.
