I would recommend you get a good care planning book, such as Doenges or Mosby's and a book I used a lot was Saunders Pocket Reference for Nurses ( 0-7216-4459-7). I also use quite frequently on my job Mosbys PDQ for RN (978-0-323-05189-7) and a great little book we used in the CCU to help calculate cardiac drip rates is Quik Check for Critical Care Nurses by Ann P. Santa. There isn't a ISBN number for the book. You order it direct by contacting REsources for Nurses, 5280 Baypointe Drive, Powell, OH 43065. This book has lamniated charts for every drip you'll ever hang in an ICU or CCU or ER and you can carry it in your pocket. I have a very huge library of reference books now that I've worked for 15 years. I guess I need to get rid of some of it.
Quote from FutureNurse112
I recently got accepted into The University of Southern Mississippi (USM) Nursing School and I will be beginning in the Fall, 2012. I was wondering if you could offer me some advice on what to expect in nursing school, some books that will help me adjust to nursing school, and just some basic tips on just how to survive it. I am very anxious about nursing and just would like to do my best.
Thanks in advance,
