Books/Literature for New Grad RN in Burn UnitRegister Today!
- by Bellarara Dec 26, '12Hello all!
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!

- Feb 11 by followyourblissI 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!
