Explore an Institutional Partnership to Improve Nurse Practitioner Student Retention, Meet Rising Demand for Primary Care Providers



SCHEDULE A DEMO

Nurse practitioner (NP) students have their work cut out for them, juggling a full plate that includes an advanced and intense curriculum (the “3Ps” are a good example) with full-time jobs and personal commitments. Stress, anxiety, and burnout are thus common and often the main causes behind NP student attrition.

The problem becomes more acute considering the projected primary care provider (PCPs) shortage within the next few years. As the majority of NPs choose to focus on family practice and specialize in the primary and specialty care of patients, they may be vital to closing the gap.

Nursing institutions thus need to improve NP student retention. One way is to find alternative learning methodologies that support students’ unique needs, pave the way for them to pass certification exams, and help develop the necessary skills and training for clinical practice.

The ideal solution should help them:

01

MASTER THE SCIENCE OF LEARNING AND MEMORY

Digital platforms that complement the three-step memory forming, retaining, and retrieval process equip students with the right tools to learn and remember facts faster and better. This will help accelerate their progress through the curriculum and strengthen their knowledge mastery and application to clinical practice.

02

BE EXAM-READY THROUGH PRACTICAL PREP WORK AND ACTIVE LEARNING

Board-style questions and quizzes that mimic real tests enable np students to be better prepared to face the hurdles of certification exams. they will also benefit from systems that have built-in active learning experiences, which help enhance classroom engagement.

03

TRACK PERFORMANCE AND DRIVE PROGRESS USING DATA ANALYTICS

Tools that can provide accurate performance data will enable educators to identify when or where students are the weakest or struggling and most importantly, how to help them. As much as possible, remediation support should be tailored to individual needs.

PICMONIC + TRUELEARN: POWERFUL SOLUTIONS FOR BETTER NP EDUCATION

Support NP students’ advanced learning needs, elevate program performance and outcomes.

Thousands of nursing schools, educators, and NP students have benefited from the integration of Picmonic and TrueLearn. Both are data-driven teaching and learning platforms with proven results that leverage a combination of audio-visual mnemonics, AI algorithms, data analytics, and evidence-based learning science. Altogether, they create an efficient learning loop that enhances learning, remembering, and recalling of information.

Five ways Picmonic + TrueLearn promote more effective NP education:

1
Learn

Students use Picmonic’s audio-visual mnemonics to self-learn, revise, and absorb complex concepts with ease.

2
Retain

A combination of humor, strong storytelling, and vivid mnemonic imagery anchors information and turns them into long-term memories.

3
Prepare

Students can use TrueLearn’s board-style questions to practice knowledge recall, prepare for exams, and track their performance.

4
Improve

Seamless integration between both platforms allows students to access Picmonic to revise notes whenever they make a mistake on TrueLearn.

5
Assess

Students and educators can access data from both platforms via dashboards to gauge performance, identify gaps, and remediate.

The Picmonic-TrueLearn synergy improves learning, retention, and recall of the need-to-know facts required in NP education. Educators have access to data dashboards to monitor and track students’ progress and development, allowing them to pinpoint and tailor remediation as needed. Students are better equipped to face certification exams with adequate support and learning resources, leading to greater educational and program outcomes.

Picmonic has been great for helping me remember details I was unable to remember before in NP school. Utilizing spaced repetition was researched and proven to help with retention. Picmonic is not only an educational tool, but it is also entertaining and this keeps me motivated to keep logging in every single day!

I felt like the TrueLearn questions were fairly similar to the structure, difficulty level, and level of detail of the questions I saw on the actual AANP exam!


Meghan

WE’VE HELPED THOUSANDS OF NP STUDENTS SEIZE SUCCESS

Picmonic took down the stress level of learning new topics and re-learning information that I had already been familiar with. I felt much less overwhelmed with all of the material I was expected to know as an NP student. I have the ability to use Picmonic whenever I have time and I can recall much more when it is test time. The price was steep for me, but since I took the plunge, I really do not regret it.

I LOVED the "bottom line" explanations as well as the "insight" sections in the TrueLearn questions! These were incredibly helpful, especially when doing so many practice questions.
