Better Health Care Starts With You
RN - System Float Pool - ICU
The Registered Nurse-Float Pool provides clinical nursing care to assigned patients, performing related assessments, procedures and treatments, evaluations, patient care plan development/revisions, and education to patient and/or family. The RN-Float puts the patient first and ensures that high quality care is given to assigned patients by following policies, clinical guidelines, safety systems such as medication scanning and bed alarm use, timely and accurate documentation, core measure compliance and serving as a patient advocate. The RN-Float makes providing an exceptional patient/family experience high priority.
Float Nurses are initially trained in Medical/Surgical/Orthopedic and Critical Care Unit (CCU) competencies and will primarily float between these two areas. Once solid competency and performance is established in these areas, Float Nurses are expected to expand their competency set to be able to float to Pediatrics, low acuity NICU, Mother/Baby, and other departments as needed, through ongoing training determined by the Manager of the RN Float Pool. Specialty Trained Float Pool Nurses in Critical care will be put into dual competencies such as Pcu/ED/Psych
