Book Recommendations | Medical Surgical Unit!

This medical-surgical textbook presents any and every body process and disease process you will see on a medical-surgical floor. In the text, you are also given the opportunity to take mini quizzes at the end of each chapter. This book is great for clinical (not carrying, it's rather large) education on your patient's disease process and also nursing exams on said material. I had this book by my side my entire nursing program. I always found myself referring back to it's content, even when studying for NCLEX-RN exam.

Another book I constantly flipped through while on the medical-surgical floor was the pharmacology textbook. I used these two books hand and hand to get the full visual picture of what my patient was experiencing and what my patient was at risk for. These books aren't going to give you answers for an exam, but they do present tons of information and will give you the tools for success.
