About the Burn Track
The Burn Residency Track is for new nursing graduates who seek to specialize in Burn Care. The program is designed to nurture the new graduate RN in the transition from student to professional RN. It provides the new nurse with the specific tools and experiences needed to begin a successful career in Burn care. Once hired into the program as a full-time employee, your first seven weeks are spent in a combination of classroom and clinical rotations that allow you to experience a full range of Burn Care.
Clinical experiences in the Burn program are designed to give the new graduate exposure to the patient demographics, the unit environments, and the healthcare professional teams in each area.
- Burn ICU
- Burn Stepdown
- Trauma Unit
- Burn OR

There will be classes throughout the rotational phase and orientation process related to critical care, general nursing principles, and pediatrics.
Placement in a Home Area
After the seven-week rotational phase, nurse residents will begin their BurnCenter orientation. Orientation will be approximately twelve weeks with a primary preceptor. The weeks will be divided between night shift and day shift.
Support is a key element in strengthening self-assurance. Throughout the entire first year of practice, there will be periodic classroom sessions that will focus on issues pertinent to the development of your practice, skills and professional transition. The classes cover everything from palliative care to Spanish for healthcare to difficult conversations.
