I am a recent new graduate and will very soon begin a job in urgent care. Does anyone have any good reference books they would recommend? Two books that I have found online that look promising are:  "Minor Emergencies: splinters to fractures" and "Textbook of urgent care medicine" . Any one that knows which one may be better or any other options for a new grad in urgent care, please let me know! Thanks.

I have "minor emergencies" and keep it in my bag for all of my fast track shifts. It's usually pretty easy to quickly find an answer, and is very clinically-oriented. I would also recommend getting a sturdy pocket notebook for storing info that you find yourself looking up frequently (suture material/size and time to removal, dermatome map, skin tension lines, etc.). I end up using this more than any other reference.
