Hi All,

I have a wonderful opportunity to interview for a Float Nurse Position that is part of a New-Grad Residency Program. I know it's floating between Med-Surg and an ICU Stepdown unit, also with the possibility of floating between all three of their locations that can be 25 minutes or longer away from each other.

Thoughts on Float Residency? Thoughts on questions to ask?

That sounds absolutely horrible for a new graduate. I would ask how much orientation I would receive on each specific unit I was expected to work in. But really, I'd probably ask where the exit door was ...and that's if I bothered to show up, at all.
