Books/Literature for New Grad RN in Burn Unit
Dec 26, '12
I will be starting my nursing career in a burn unit! I'd like to prepare by reading more about nursing care and management for this population. Does anyone have a suggestion?
Thank you so much!

I read and loved "Burn Unit: Saving Lives After The Flames" by Barbara Ravage. I read it before I trained on the Burn Unit and found that it really provided a great Nursing perspective.
There are many great books on the A& P of burns, the dressings, the care; It also depends on whether you are in an ICU setting, Acute, or Sub Acute.
Good luck and keep us posted!

Awesome thank you! I will order it with my upcoming paycheck
The burn unit I'm working at is icu,imu, and medsurg. Right now they are assigning me ICU pts, and so far I'm learning and growing
