I am a new grad and just accepted an offer on a med surg/onc floor. The patient ratio on days is 1:6, and if someone calls out or things are hectic, they were honest and said it could be 7 occasionally. I really liked the vibe there, everyone was friendly and really seemed to believe in teamwork. Orientation is a solid 12 weeks so they don't just throw you to the wolves which is great.
I was just curious from some experienced people what you think of the ratio. It's a little more than I was expecting, but certainly not as scary as some others I have seen. Thoughts?
