Congratulations on passing the boards. I'm a little concerned over a couple of comments, that the lower ratio, usually 2:1 on a good night, is somehow easier. Yes, it can help you focus, however the ratio is lower because the level of care required on an ongoing basis is more "intense". Keep in mind that night admissions tend be of a higher acuity. The preceptor program I hope will allow you the time to be competent on the floor. In many hospitals the least experienced staff, in years, can be nocs, so your resources are less. Your staffing numbers are also lower, but your census for the day may be its highest at 7am. Be realistic, be prepared. I hope it goes well, keep us posted.
