Cardiac Surgery care

Has 6 years experience. Specializes in oncology, MS/tele/stepdown.

Can anyone point me to towards resources for nursing care following cardiac surgeries, I.e. CABG, TAVR, etc? I took a contract on a cardiac surgery floor and am so out of my depth! I don't do ICU, so this is after the initial recovery when they are tele or stepdown level. Anything would help, but I'm only here temporarily so I'm not looking for expensive courses or anything. I did speak to a charge nurse who is going to see if she can get some resources they usually give to new hires, but if anyone on here has suggestions or tips, I'm all ears!
