Cardiothoracic Surgical Nursing books...

  1. Hi there,

    I am a new grad nurse starting on a Cardiothoracic ICU soon. I am on a hunt for a book in the USA called Cardiothoracic Surgical Nursing by Betsy A. Finkelmeier 2nd edition. I have looked high and low and have not come across a store that has it available. Would anyone have any suggestions on where to obtain this book?

    Or, would anyone have any other recommendations for this type of reference book?

    Thank you all!

    Unfortunately, that book is out of print. Your best bet is to keep checking the sites sirI posted for used copies. Another reference we use at our facility is the book Manual of Perioperative Care in Cardiac Surgery by Robert Bojar. I do personally prefer the Finkelmeier book though.
