    Oh, happy (almost) graduation! I am in love with the clinical companion Med-Surg Nursing book by Lewis. Small enough to carry around, condense enough for quick reading on diagnosis and care for those patients! Hope this helps, good luck!
  10. I agree on all previous posts, 8 days is not a sufficient amount of time for a new-grad nurse in any setting to feel at all competent and it is most likely management's way to fix staffing issues by taking you off orientation. Of course, I agree with...
