About LVN patients ratio

  1. How many patients can an LVN take at a time?

    I know RN should have a ratio about 4:1, how about LVN?? What can an LVN do? what can they not do?

    Thank you.

    There is no law guiding ratios in any state except California. The idea of 4:1 for RNs is definitely not something that is adhered to for most units. Why are you asking? The type of nursing being done makes a big difference in the potential answer.
