    When I worked burn it was on job training. At first you only observed and learned about the dressings, and if you still wanted to come back they would start teaching you dressings ect... took me 3 weeks before I was allowed to change a dressing. That was 6 years ago. Loved the work, but had to relocate.

    2. discuss burn statistics for the united states.
    3. describe nursing interventions crucial to helping burn patients survive their injuries.

    I am just starting in a burn center in surgery....thank you for the info. I have been looking everywhere to get a little knowledge before I go to work...My only concern at this point now is my reaction to the burn patients... I want to comfort them, not with sympathy but empathy and I'm not sure I can pull it off....Any suggestions.

    Hi all, I completed my degree in nursing yesterday (woohoo) and have been offered a post in the regional burns unit in Scotland. I am very excited about starting and also very nervous at the same time.
    I would love to recommend a book to you all that was written by a friend of my husband. This gentleman suffered extensive burns injuries in a deliberate attack and his book is an account of his experience. It is an incredibly moving story and I hope that you would enjoy it. The book is called 'Burnt' and is by Ian Colqhoun.
    Thank you for all the resources that have been posted so far, trying to work through them all to get a bit of background info before starting.
    Best wishes to you all
