Books for trauma nurses?

  1. I just started a job on a trauma unit at a level 1 trauma center (not ICU/ED) after working for 2 years as a med/surg nurse. I would love to brush up on skills and learn some more about the types of patients a trauma nurse would get. Does anyone have any recommendations for books/pocket guides that I could study?

    Thanks!

    Take the Trauma Nursing Core Course (TNCC) - it comes with a book. That is one of your best resources.

    The ATLS manual is another good one.
