Staff Sharing with 12 hours shifts

  1. Hello,
    This is my first time posting. I just wanted to ask you guys your opinion about being staff shared during a 12 hour shift. If a nurse is staff shared to a different floor for the first 4 hours, and then staffing calls for a staff share on that same floor from your home floor, and they will be changing your slot where you will be having different pts, don't you think it is fair for another nurse to take a turn that is just coming in for 11-7? Thank you for your thoughts Lightning Bug RN

    I actually used to float between two floors and do this and I actually didn't mind doing this at all. You just have to be extremely organized!
