Float RN vs unit position

  1. I have 9yrs exp. in med/surg, rehab, ortho, telemetry, step down unit and 3mo dialysis. I was a float rn for 3.5yrs. After 2yrs off being a stay at home mom I am returning to the workforce and have an interview as a float Rn. I need the flexibility. Am I wrong returning to a float position being off for 2.5 yrs or should be looking at a part time permanent position for at least a yr?

    Why would you be "wrong"?

    I am excited but worried I have been away for awhile to float. My thinking is at first I will be rusty And everything will flow. Was looking for other Nurses in the a similiar situation.
