Nursing Management for Burns
- 0Feb 24, '07 by cancalbloopHello!
Does anyone know of any excellent burn injury websites? I'm looking mostly for nursing interventions or a website that has NCLEX like questions on burns I can answer.
Is there a Critical Care Nurse out there who specializes in Burns that could answer questions I had?
Thanks for your time and resources.
Have a great day!
