Can relatives work together: same unit/ same shift?
- 0Feb 5, '08 by tinatinabobinaI plan on applying to the unit my aunt works on. On the application, it asks if I have any relatives working there, and if so, what unit. By listing her, would I not be able to work there? TIA
- 1Feb 5, '08 by Leilah75_RNMy husband's cousin and aunt works on the same unit. They were both secretaries. As far as I know, the management will not place you on the unit when either one of you will be under the supervision of the other. Example: head nurse and a staff nurse on the same unit. Rules varies from unit to unit or per hospital. Better ask human resources as well about it for more info.

Have also worked with husband and wife teams in the same unit, but they could not manage the other. Both in the staff nurse role.
Again, each facility has their own rules in place, so best always to check with them right from the beginning.
