I'm planning on a move back up to the Seattle area after being in CA for 10 years. I've always heard that CA has really good patient/nurse ratios. In med-surg, it's 5 patients to 1 nurse. What are the ratios like in WA?
The ratio depends on the hospital and whether or not they're union. And the ratio also varies on the unit... My last job was a med-surg floor, days/eves: 4 to 1 or 5 to 1 with an aid and noc: 5 to 1, 6/7 to 1 with an aid...
