A little background.....I was a paramedic before I became a nurse. I started in the ED as a new grad and have been there a few years. I have become restless and want to try something different, but not necessarily a change in specialties. I know this sounds somewhat silly, but I also want out of the ED politics and just want to do my job and then go home. I know of some coworkers that transfer to float pool and only float to the different EDs if that is their background. Has anyone tried this and what was your experience? I have heard different stories, so am unsure if this is a good option to consider or not.

I have not done that but I worked with a few people who have. They actually loved it because they typically got to work where they wanted since most of the “non_ER” nurses don’t want anything to do with the ER. There were perks for working the float pool that they didn’t have working as an employee of the ER so they got the best of both worlds. Of course, whatever perks there might be, if any, will vary from hospital to hospital.
