    I am curious, what part of the country do you live in if you happen to live in the USA?

    Cecil Dains's book on PeriAnesthesia Nursing may be a good resource. Check out the ASPAN website too because they set the standard of care for this practice. Learn a lot from your senior nurses.

    Similar situation, hired as new nurse into PACU. Thankfully I had a very structured orientation program that lasted > 4 months. That said, if I was to look on my own, it would have been critical care resources.

    Hope this helps.

    I was a new grad straight into PACU. My orientation was 6 months. I've been there 3 years now and the best advise I can give is to observe well and ask lots of questions. Don't be embarrassed I have learned so much from our anesthesiologist and CRNAs.
