I frequent allnurses often for lots of question regarding nursing in general. I'd like to contribute to my part and provide any assistance I could to my fellow nurses.
The book I used primarily is the purple Certification Review for PeriAnesthesia Nursing, which is 2nd edition. Although the new ASPAN standard came out this year. Most rationale from the book still gives great study guidelines..
I also used Perianesthesia Nursing Care [Paperback]
Daphne Stannard (Author), Dina A. Krenzischek (Author)
As a great everyday read, it explains the essential need to know of the bedside care.
Drains-PeriAnesthesia-Nursing-a critical care approach . It's a great book for any peri anesthesia nurses. I had the book as reference only
Good luck to the test takers.
The test is kinda long 175 questions with 3.5 hr to complete. No break time. U get to know the result right away.
