Mnemonics helped me as a nursing students at various levels. I can share this with my nurse practitioner students and have them develop their own mnemonics. I can also develop some of my own and share with my students as a way of building on prior knowledge. I still use one of the mnemonics that was listed - OPQRST

Technical Remarks:

No problems

I am planning on using this next semester with my class that has just completed the modalities course so they can review prior to completing their modality clinical proficiences. It can also be used a reference for developing different types of mnemonics to help with retention. The article also includes examples from emergency medicine and descriptions of how to develop each type.
