new and need help

  1. i'm new and glad to join. i am trying to find an answer to a question and hoped that maybe i might could find it here. i was wondering if anyone might know the north carolina minimum state ratio for cna to resident (patient). i am currently in school studying for my rn degree , but also working at a nursing center trying to keep my cna current. my problem is that i feel like my co-workers and myself are trying to take care of the most people that the state requires. any ideas what the state says?

    Sorry not from North Carolina but you might be able to look it up on your board of nursing website and see what they say...just putting in my two cents for the day

    As far as I am aware, there are no minimum staffing ratios for CNAs in our state. Please see this thread for an excellent discussion of this issue:
