ICU to Behavioral Health?

  1. Hi, I have recently been offered an interview in the Behavioral Health facility that my current hospital also owns. I started in a level 2 trauma ICU right out of nursing school, and recently joined the Rapid Response team, so critical care nursing is all I know. I know that it will be a big change of pace going from ICU to psych, have any of you made this transition or a similar transition? How difficult was it for you to move from one specialty to another totally different specialty?
