Hi! I have just accepted a full-time nights position at a nursing home/rehabilitation center. It is 7p-7a and I am a new grad. This will be my very first job as a RN and I've never worked night shift before anywhere. I was told that the nurse to patient ratio would be about 1:30. Is this normal? I guess I just feel like that is a lot of people to handle as a new grad. Also, as this is a nursing home, what kind of skills do you think I will learn and what do you think a typical night would be like? I am super nervous as this is my first job. Orientation starts in 3 weeks, so what should I be doing to prepare (besides the paperwork/physical..stuff like that). I thought maybe go over some gero stuff from school. Any thoughts?
