book list for CRNA school
- 0Oct 13, '10 by mnurse13Hi,
I just received my book list for CRNA school starting Jan. (yeah!) There are about 15 texts required for the program, and then 20 or so more recommended. I was just wondering if any students or grads out there had a favorite text. Basic Principles of Anesthesia and Pharmacology had the most choices. Of course, funds are limited.

Mass general is a good clinical book that you can carry with you.
Those are the two I use in clnicals, you'll just have fun times reading the other giant books in didactic.

For my pre-req. classes I"m taking now I do use ebooks.com and for the classes I know I don't want to spend money on books I can do an online rental version. One book new was $50, I did an online version with full viewing rights for the semester for $13. They also had other rates than just for the semester.
