I recently interviewed for a position that would be for nights on a med-surg floor. One of the floors may even be telemetry (interviewed for multiple open med-surg positions). I was told that during nights I will have up to 8 patients. I am guessing on busy days it may be even more. Orientation would be for at least 6 weeks (on days) and could be extended if needed. Do you think this can be handled by a new grad? Did anyone else start off with ratios like this? Thoughts? Suggestions? I really value everyone's opinion on this board! Thanks!
