The ambulatory float pool provides coverage and support for the multiple subspecialty clinics housed at Seattle Children’s hospital to ensure adequate staffing to meet the needs of our patients and families. Float nurses partner with interdisciplinary care teams consisting of MDs, PAs, nurse practitioners, medical assistants, social workers, nutritionists and specialty based technicians in each department. Our nursing team supports providers in both direct patient care and in the back office. Direct patient care includes complex care coordination, preoperative, post-operative and diagnosis specific teaching and family support. Our back office roles focus on telephone triage and “after-visit” care coordination. Float nurses are expected to develop a broad knowledge base in ambulatory pediatric nursing, but do focus on a smaller group of subspecialties for their day to day work.
