What are your rules for floating?
My unit has a large amount of per diem nurses and in addition, hired a group of travelers for the busy season. The travelers are not allowed to float per their contract. The rest of us are floated on rotation.
With all the staff, and many of the per diem working part time hours, I find myself floating more often than not, despite the fact that I am one of few full time staff nurses on the unit. I don't mind the occasional float and understand the need. I do feel however, these rules are unfair to the dedicated unit staff.
Is your policy similar?
