In-House Float Pool

The Children’s float pool includes multiple pods throughout our inpatient and outpatient areas based on experience: emergency department pod, critical care pod, hematology/oncology pod, general patient care pod, outpatient/clinics pod. Nurses in the float pool choose between 48  or 96 hours in a 6-week period. Both levels offer premium hourly pay plus shift differentials. Float pool employees can set self-scheduling options, and, although it is required to rotate between all shifts, participants can indicate primary shift preference.

Full-time benefits are available for those working 6 and 8 months of the year. Seasonal employees can elect to take the off-season without pay or use paid time off (PTO) to be paid up to their full full-time employment status during off-season. With special approval, you can pick up shifts during your off-season.
