Hello all!

I will be starting my nursing career in a burn unit! I'd like to prepare by reading more about nursing care and management for this population. Does anyone have a suggestion?

Thank you so much!

I read and loved "Burn Unit: Saving Lives After The Flames" by Barbara Ravage. I read it before I trained on the Burn Unit and found that it really provided a great Nursing perspective.

There are many great books on the A& P of burns, the dressings, the care; It also depends on whether you are in an ICU setting, Acute, or Sub Acute.

Good luck and keep us posted!

Awesome thank you! I will order it with my upcoming paycheck :) The burn unit I'm working at is icu,imu, and medsurg. Right now they are assigning me ICU pts, and so far I'm learning and growing :)
