    I'm a new ASN grad in Florida who just started my first position as a BICU nurse. I had no experience with burns, I chose the BICU wanting to see a non-traditional aspect of nursing. Traditional med/surg wasn't exciting enough for me during school, and I like the idea of focused care instead of generalized. Plus ICU's are well stocked, the physicians and nurses work very closely and support each other (especially in my unit), you really get to know your patients, and the documentation is easier with 1-2 patients versus 5-6 patients. Burns are a branch of medicine that tends to scare people, but you quickly get used to it like anything else.... after a few dressing changes and hydrotherapy sessions, you adjust. Good luck!
