Hi, here is my best most honest advice! So being float pool your the bottom of the totem pole. your the first to get flexed, your the first to be sitting on a 1:1 and your the first to be shipped off the another unit half way through your shift if the 1:1 gets D/C. That's not good news if your trying to make a great impression or become a nurse for the hospital you are working for.
My question: Are you with an agency or are you an actual employee of the hospital?
This is very important because if you are not an actual employee of the hospital you are not going to be on anyone's radar to advance into a nursing role. If you have a different badge than everyone else on the floor you are automatically looked at as an outside help that means nobody is looking at your performance with the anticipation that you will someday work as a nurse with them (Sorry this is the honest truth from my experience). Furthermore, as a sitter you are not going to get the exposure of a full time staffed PCT on the floor. This greatly hinders your chances of getting hired because guess what, I'm a full time PCT on the floor and i'm networking my booty off everyday like crazy fighting for that same nursing spot, and I know the manager, the director and all the charge nurses, and I have a great reputation (figuratively). So my chances of knowing when and who to talk to about a open position are much higher by default.
So my suggestion would be get a full time spot ASAP on one particualr unit. Its okay to be a float pool first or second semester of nursing school
but as you inch closer to graduation you should be looking for a permanent floor position because that is how you will build a reputation of being a Rock star hard working nursing student, that's how you know who to talk to, when positions are opening and that's how you get a transfer form filled and ready for the day you pass your NCLEX to transition seamlessly into a new grad role.
Oftentimes it takes 6 months or a 90 day probationary period or something similar before you are able to internally transfer. If this is the case try to get in there asap.
Let me know what you think of what I said!
Best of luck to you!
