Books/Literature for New Grad RN in Burn Unit

  1. 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!
