Float Division: Medical/Surgical, ICU and Maternal Infant
These individual Float Divisions are units with
no physical boundaries, but still maintain the integrity of each specialized
team. The Medical/Surgical FD nurses have the opportunity to work on
all of the medical and surgical areas. The ICU FD nurses have the
opportunity to work in all of the ICU areas including intermediate care, ED,
PACU. The Maternal Infant FD nurses have
the opportunity to work in Labor and Delivery, Neonatal Intensive Care, the
Ante partum and Post partum units.
The Float Division nurses’ use all of their
nursing assessment and clinical skills to meet new patients, families and
staff on a daily basis. To prepare these Float Division nurses to work in
these specialty areas, a variety of courses are offered including Cardiac
Dysrthymia, Chemotherapy and any of the Critical Care courses. Clinical
orientation focuses on the nurse’s needs and strengths as they are partnered
with a preceptor to maximize their orientation experience. All Float
Division nurses receive a quarterly bonus of 25% for floating to the
different areas. The Float pool team is a dynamic group of staff who meet
the challenge and flexibility of a new assignment every day.
