I am planning on relocating to Salt Lake City for a while just to experience a different area, advance my career and meeting new people. I was wondering, what is the patient to nurse ratio in Utah? I live in Southern California and the patient to nurse ratio is 1 nurse to 4-5 patients in our Medical/Surgical floor. At times when they are short of nurses we go up to 6 but it is rare.
I have 2 years of experience in Medical/Surgical floor. I plan on acquiring my Bachelors through the University of Utah. My sister who lives there has mentioned of a work study program at the University. I was wondering if there are any nurses or student nurses who've done this?
I love Utah and can't wait to meet other nurses!
