So I just finished my RN coursework and plan to take my NCLEX in June assuming I recieve my ATT by that time :/ Anyways, I've wanted to work on a burn unit since I started nursing school. While looking at different job postings for burn units I noticed they ALL specify that you need to have ICU experience and prefer applicants with previous burn experience but browsing through this discussion board I see a lot of people say they went straight into a BICU. So any tips? My plan is to apply anyways the worst they can say is no, right? I like to think I have a pretty solid background. Nursing is a second career for me. My first degree is in biomedical science and I have six years pharmacy technician experience so maybe that will somehow make me stand out?
