    have you taken TNCC? Manual that goes with the trauma nursing core course it great......... critical care nursing text books touch on trauma...........but more from an ICU standpoint.

    Right now I am taking a Critical care class and we are using Thelans Critical Care Nursing: Diagnosis and Management by Urden et al. After that then I start a Trauma Nursing Class. MY unit has a Trauma Nursing book published by WB Saunders but it costs 99 bucks. Thanks!

    Yes, the book you use for TNCC is excellent! They loaned us ours, but you could buy it for $40. Ruby

    you can check ebay, but I was just looking and a lot of the texts are older.
