So if you have a strong stomach and love wound nursing this is the place for you. I have yet to come across a fresh, burn trauma (does not happen too often) but I have cared for inpatient burn patients ranging from 5-40% TBSA that have been there for a few days to months. Like I mentioned, lots of dressings (some take >1hr), IVs, pain management etc. We also have patients that come on our unit with amputations, flaps, and other serious wounds, which incorporates a lot of assessments. It's defiantly a busy unit but everyone helps each other out and it's a excellent working atmosphere. If you need an area to become comfortable with your skills it's a great unit. I have learned soo much in 1.5 moths it's crazy! Other general skills that come along with the unit are catheters, staple/suture removal, sterile dressings, IVs, blood transfusions, trachs, NGs, and many more specific skills!
