Float pool, would I be in over my head? - Page 3Register Today!
- Mar 7 by VespertinasQuote from 30yearnurse4uI'm pretty sure you just contradicted yourself.And generally, if you are offered a position on a floor you are uncomfortable with, and you refuse, your reputation just hit the skids, and they will say you "refused". This puts you in a very bad place with that organization.........My advice is... be choosy about where float pools will send you.
Your job is to ask about full training (6 weeks) on the floors to which you could be assigned. If they can't offer this, this means they have no training for you.
But... siRNita, I think doing float pool as a new grad is just nuts. It shouldn't be allowed. Not just for patients but for you too! You're being robbed of a solid foundation. If you feel comfortable in your position, I give you kudos for managing but I honestly think that you may not know what pieces you are missing.

I did have a misunderstanding for the orientation though. They offer 2 week for the hospital, policies, computer charting, etc. then it's 10 shifts overall training for the floors with extra, different training for mother baby.
Like others said, I would not hang chemo, might have patients in for symptom control. If I had a patient on tele, charge nurse would check the strips and sign off on them.
