I am a Northern Virginia Community College student and I really want to be a burn nurse. But I am not sure what exactly I need to be looking into. In other words, do I just become a registered nurse and apply for burn units once I get my RN? Or should I be looking into special training programs? Please help me. This information is also for a school paper I am writing so I need information back ASAP. Your help is most appreciated. Thank you for all that you do.
