I believe I've come to the right forum!
I just recently accepted a position to start on a surgery/ortho floor and I am looking for reading material to start gaining knowledge in this area. Let me say that I am a new LPN grad and this will be my first job. During my clinicals at school I only cared for a few tkr or thr....not enough to say I have a wealth of information stored to say the least!
Any feedback/information will be greatly appreciated. I start orientation in 10 days but will not actually begin on the floor w/my preceptor for approx 1 month after my hire date. Hopefully I can get a basic understanding.
