I'd like to hear from Bay area nurses about their patient ratios and how LPN's and CNA's fit into the equation. I'd like to know how this area compares to others and if there is much of a difference between the local hospitals. I'm just a student starting nursing school in January, but I'm considering an Earn As You Learn scholorship that requires a 2 year work commitment in med/surg upon graduation. I'd like to know what I'm comparing it to. Thanks.
