Banner transfer policy

Hello,

I have been reviewing banners transfer policy recently and wonder if anyone could answer this.

It says transfer is not available for a year. But it also says in the first 6 months of employment both banner and the employee will decide if you’re a good fit for the position/unit.

If you don’t feel you are a good fit for the unit what would happen next? Would they terminate employment or work with you to find another position available?

I would ask a trusted resource at work, like a supervisor

That's rarely a positive thing. I would assume it means "fired", although in some cases another solution may be possible. A new grad in ICU who's well-liked but not quite "there" might be allowed to transfer to med/surg, for example ...but I doubt that an experienced nurse failing in med surg would be allowed to find a "better fit" in NICU.

If you’re talking about a Banner in Az, Az is an at will state so I would assume it means fired or resign. They are not going to help you find another position. Banner is very corporate and I don’t consider them nursing friendly at all.

This is true. Many nurses who don't work out in ICU are sent to M/S or PCU floors. But I'm not sure what happens if they don't think you are a good fit for M/S or PCU. I haven't personally encountered an RN who was transferred off a floor after orientation but I have seen some get fired or "quit." They definitely are not going to send anyone to a specialty unit.
