Howdy, my fellow burn nurses! I'm a new nurse grad about to take my Nclex in a week and when I've passed it, I'm celebrating by going shoe shopping for my new job in the burn unit here in Houston.
I know it's a hot environment in the patient rooms so I have been looking into Columbia's undershirts which are supposed to be cooling. They are allowed in my hospital from what I've gathered from burn nurses who currently work there. Any other suggestions for how to keep cool? They'll have scrubs
for us to wear and I was told I can change as often as I need during my shift and to keep deodorant in my locker.
I'm concerned about shoes and feet swelling. I have high arches and wide, bony feet so my Sanita clogs are not an option for any unit that isn't freezing. I'm looking into Alegria but am open to any suggestions y'all might have
Thanks for any suggestions or feedback!
