Hey, everyone! I'm a new RN, and I see quite a few openings about floating. I've seen so many different opinions, I just want to see what everyone has to say.
There is an opening I want to apply to that says Nursery float. It makes it sound like floating between Nursery and NICU, but I'm not sure.
Would floating be a good idea as a new nurse?
Also, since this floating is a narrower scope, would it be better?
What are the pros and cons to floating, in general?
Thanks for all of the help and advice! I'm not really sure what to do. In the area I live in, it's hard to get a nursing position without experience. I've applied for about 70 jobs, and still no luck. So that's why I'm considering applying for a float position.
Please let me know what you think.
