New GN starting as Rehab Nurse

  1. Hello!
    I am a brand new GN and was offered a position at a Rehab Hospital. The hospital deals with a lot of strokes, TBIs, amputees and post trauma patients.
    Does anyone have suggestions on some reading material to brush up on these areas? And perhaps what meds to review before I start orientation in two weeks?
    Any suggestions appreciated.

    Where were you lucky enough to land this job? I am currently interviewing for a position in a rehab hospital that has a lot of what you just mentioned. I did my first clinical experience in a stroke unit at Spaulding rehab and our group made a little funny video about it. our whole class made videos about their first clinical experience and i am proud to say we won because ours I guess was the funniest. If you want to see it, feel free to message me and I'll send you the link!! ALL ABOUT STROKE!!
