I graduated from nursing school
in 1976 and have continuiously worked as a nurse, mostly in administration in a community mental health clinic. I will retire soon and want to do some actual nursing again. While my license (California) is current, I believe I would be dangerous if just thrown into bedside nursing. Checking with local hospitals they seem more intent on getting work done rather than providing educational updates. So, I need to do some work on my own.
My question is what is the most helpful basic medical/surgical text that will give me the most comprehensive information? Also, which pharmacy text would you recommend? Thanks
