Nursing student considering job as nursing asst on burn unit

  1. I was hoping someone here could give me a description of what it would be like to work as a nursing assistant on a burn unit. More specifically, I was wondering how being an assistant there differs from being an assistant on other units of the hospital. Thanks!

    Most likely, you'll be trained to do wound care and will spend the majority of your time doing that versus normal UAP stuff like vitals, blood sugars etc.

    Thanks, that makes a lot of sense. I really appreciate insight into this!
