Start new job soon in burns

  1. I'm just finishing my new grad year, anyway, I managed to get a job in one of the better burn's units in my country.

    I've seen a few burns in my student years and as outlies on the wards I worked in, is there anything I need to know, like any advice experienced burns nurses would give?

    I've been warned of the smell, but such things don't bother me.

    Congratulations! Burn nursing is a wonderful job with many rewards. It has its challenges of course, but the satisfaction of watching your patients overcome the difficulties they face due to their burn injury is worth all the hardships! I learned so much from my patients in the burn unit, they can teach you how to face your own trials with courage and a smile!!!
