Is there a burn nurse certification? if not what certifications could a burn unit nurse become certified in?

ABLS - Advanced Burn Life Support. It's not nurse specific 'tho, and tends to only cover the first 12-24 hours of burn patient care. But at least it's only one day.
I've also taken ACLS, PALS, and TNCC. A lot of my coworkers also hold various wound care certifications. And management is really pushing for those eligible to get their CCRN.
