Well I know the nurse in Tennessee being prosecuted was a resource nurse - so since the description varies - it would be hard to share experiences.

What you're describing is what used to be called a Clinical Nurse Specialist (CNS) which is a masters prepared nurse.  It sounds like the posting is for a CNS but without the proper degree level.

It sounds more to me like a staff development nurse or nurse educator position. Is this in a hospital?

In Dallas, that means a float pool nurse who gets paid twice more than regular staff because they are hired to float every shift. The pay is ridiculous. Not sure if that's same job as you describe though

Which means they're not wanting to pay...

Also, be careful about "additional duties as assigned" on top of getting pulled to be a one-person float pool...
