Book Recommendations

Posted

Hi there, would anyone have any book suggestions for a new grad starting in the ED? I've heard of Sheehy's Manual of Emergency Care, but the last edition came out in 2012(?) so I assume the content is outdated now. I'm looking for something content heavy like Sheehy's, but if anyone also has any leisure reading suggestions (like a nurse detailing their own experiences in the ED or as a new grad), I'd like to hear them as well! Thank you!

House of God is a good classic read. Not nursing, but hospital related.

Books by Echo Heron

Start reading CEN material, that will give you the basics of the conditions you will see in the ED

Great, thank you! Would you recommend any specific CEN resources? Or just any?

I haven't taken the CEN in about 10 years, but the previous version of this book was excellent preparation for it, and for emergency nursing in general:  image.png.901c7e0d6c52450c10bb4d57e4f9450a.png

The 7th edition was published last year.

If you like emergency medicine textbooks you might look at these two:image.png.d607d2d446cabcf4da28111ff7c677bc.png  image.png.56505a946c4dc913710c18dba4e36d0c.png

Most people seem to like Tintinalli's, but I like Rosen's.

Depending on your state of licensure, you can sometimes get free access to Access Medicine through a tertiary center in your state.  (For instance, OHSU library in Oregon.)  This can give you access to a laundry list of medicine textbooks on the subject of your choice.

I could not get a lick of sense out of Sheehys manual. It was written up like a series of care plans

Polly Gerber Zimmerman wrote Triage Nursing Secrets, and thats a book I could read again and again and still learn from. It's out opf print, but you can get it on amazon.
