I am changing from critical care to med-surg nursing. I would like to find a good reference book and also any med-surg nursing associations. Any suggestions? I will be specifically working with orthopedic patients.

I work med/surg and use my nursing school books for reference. I love my palm pilot with epocrates for all the new and interesting and confusing meds the doctors order. Your best reference is the nice experienced nurse who will help you. I have one nurse (she is almost 70 and outruns, outshines everybody) who will stop whatever she is doing to answer a question.
So why med surg? Curious.

I'm switching to med-surg for the challenge of learning a new area.
