We recently began self scheduling on our med/surg unit. Many of our permanent staff are not pleased that we have put agency nurses into our sign-up rotation. (Everyone signs up on a rotating basis each month.) The opinion is that the agency nurses are there to fill the needs of our floor and should sign up after all of our permanent RNs choose their schedules. How do other units handle this? Do agency RNs only fill needs for other units, or are they scheduled as if regular staff?? As a facilitator of this scheduling I need some input from others and any suggestions are greatly appreciated!!
