This is a discussion on Burn ICU Externship Preparation in Burn ICU / Burn Unit Critical Care, part of Critical Care Nursing ...

I am looking for suggestion as to how I should prepare for this exciting opportunity.
Currently, I am reviewing fluid resuscitation and general wound care, but what else should I be proficient in order to put my best foot forward during the externship? What topics are of most importance to understand if offered an externship in a Burn ICU?
At this point I am studying for my exit exam and looking toward the NCLEX exam, so I am looking to be able to prioritize topics of study appropriately.
Any input would be greatly appreciated!

"Yes, I love detoxing violent alcoholics who spit and scream and try to kick at me!" is a good start.
