Floating is not required but is a necessary tool when staffing travel nurses. Travel nurses are known to be flexible so being able to float units should not be an issue for you. Usually nurses will float within the same division, they will not be floated to all kinds of other units. It is said that floating gives travel nurses anxiety and frustration but by being patient this can work towards your advantage because you will have the reward of meeting more patients and getting an insight into other peoples lives.
