    Would be helpful first to know what type of unit you are wanting to staff - patient acuity, etc.

    THIS IS THE MATRIX THAT I USE FOR MED-SURG UNIT FOR A SMALL RUAL HOSPITAL (31 BEDS). THIS DOES NOT INCLUDE A UNIT CLERK ON 7-3 AND 3-11. NO CLERK ON 11-7. I ADJUST STAFFING WITH CENSUS AND ACUITY. I ALSO TRY TO KEEP A 6:1 LICENSED PERSONEL PER PATIENT. IT'S NOT PERFECT, BUT SEEMS TO WORK OK. HOPE THIS WILL HELP.
    7-3 AND 3-11
    0-5 PTS 1 RN 1 NA
    5-10 PTS 1RN 1 LPN (DEPENDING ON ACUITY 1 PCA)
    10-14 PTS 1 RN 1 LPN 1 PCA
    14-20 PTS 2 RN 1 LPN 2 NA
    20-24 PTS 2 RN 2 LPN 2 NA
    24- 28 PTS 3 RN 2 LPN 2 NA
    28-31 PTS 3 RN 3 LPN 2 NA
    11-7
    0-5 PT 1 RN 1 LPN
    5-10 PT 1 RN 1 LPN 1 NA
    10- 18PT 1 RN 2 LPN 1 NA
    18-24 PT 2 RN 2 LPN 1 NA
    24-28 PT 3 RN 2 LPN 1 NA
    28-31 PT 3 RN 3 LPN 1 NA
