    I’ve been a med/surg nurse for 6 years and a float nurse for 2 of those. As a PRN float nurse, I can vouch for every tip here. Most units are so relieved to have help, they will bend over backwards for the nurse floating there. They will also remember you if you float there again. And they will empathize with a new nurse/first time floater because they have been there too! The best thing to do is to be proactive and play well with others. Your shift will go a lot smoother and you’ll be remembered as super helpful. Down the road, if you’re looking for something different, you’ll already have an “in” on the unit where you floated.
