I am a new grad on the float pool at my hospital and while I don't LOVE it, I don't think it's because I'm float, I think I just have the new grad blues (6months so far). I was an aide in float so that's how I got the job. I go to all floors except PCU and ICU and I will start training for those at my one year mark. It's a lot to take on, I'm not going to lie. I also asked for 3 months of orientation and got it. I think nursing is so different from school though, that no matter where you go there will be a learning curve, and if you can stick it out for a year, it will all get easier (at least this is what I keep telling myself).
I am on nights too which is new for me and not so cool for my new marriage....but the 25% diff is worth it for a year- then maybe we will have enough seniority to go onto days!
New grads on float don't come often- so take this experience and run with it!
