A Must Have in the OR "This little book is amazing. I've only had it a week and I absolutely love it. It has great tips and pointers that I've referred to many times throughout my day in the OR as a new nurse. The anatomy, prep and suture pages are my favorite-there is so much information on everything. Anything you write down with a] pen is erasable as well. I've showed my coworkers and many are going to buy it, even the seasoned nurses."--Kathaleen, Online Reviewer
