I am a new RN who has been working for a little over one year now. I work in LTAC where we get 4:1 ratio with patients being a little more complicated than your average med surg patient. I love it here but I need to move back home. I really want ICU but I am scared I am not ready for that, I think I need more med surg experience. I was wondering what is the best way to find out the patient-nurse ratio? Would it be rude if I called the nursing recruiter of each hospital and asked?
