    How come ive completed a mental health nursing degree without knowing what the word analgesia means :/. I was only tested on antipsychotics, anti depressents and mood stabilisers. Ive just found out now 2 years later, my mum whos a general nurse said surely you know that analgesia's are pain killers. It scared me sometimes how i can miss basic information, unless i just forgot.

    I ve learnt it for my 1st year med management exam but maybe you just forgot as you don't have to use the word often?
