Nursing students already spend too much on tuition. That’s why we think it’s so important to draw attention to free resources (and why we only charge $15/student for ChartFlow)
The websites below all have free access available and will not ask you for payment information unless you purchase a premium account. With the exception of ChartFlow, we do not partner or endorse any of the sites below, we only appreciate their quality and $0 price tag.
💻 Study Tools
👉 Quizlet - This flashcard site allows you to make your own flashcards or search for previously created sets. For example, you can find an NCLEX set of 434 flashcards, a pharmacology set with over 800 cards, and a very highly reviewed nursing fundamentals set of 204 cards. Using Quizlet is always free, but if you want to create your own sets and track your progress, you’ll need a premium account.
👉 ChartFlow - We’re biased on this one, but if you want to practice your patient prioritization and/or charting skills, head over to our free course for students. This is a good way to start thinking about realistic patient care by using patient charts to represent scenarios.
📖 Study Guides, Cheat Sheets, and Downloads
👉 NursesLabs.com - This site has dozens of study guides, which are a mix of PowerPoint-style slides, vocab lists, and high yield notes. There’s no sign up necessary, but a popup with an ad will show that you’ll need to click “x” to close. If you click on the “exams” section, you’ll also find hundreds of general nursing quizzes and NCLEX style exam questions without paying a single cent.
👉 Anurseinthemaking.com - We can’t believe the number of free materials this website has listed for download. You can find everything from labor and delivery cheat sheets, to clinical care plan guides, to an NCLEX Cram Sheet. Not only does this site allow you access to quality content, but everything is designed really nicely so it’s fun to look at!
👉 NinjaNerd - NinjaNerd started as a medical school lecture site, but they’ve recently added nursing. You can view nursing whiteboard lectures on their site or watch them directly on YouTube if you prefer.
👉 RegisteredNurseRN- This channel is amazing for learning content you didn’t quite understand the first time around. You can watch videos on everything from clinical skills to EKG heart rhythms. This is a great supplement if you miss a day of school or you don’t quite understand the way your instructor described a concept. Her website also has a bunch of additional materials.
We’ll try to continue posting free resources like these in future blogs, so don’t forget to check back!
