    Jim, I was really glad to see your request for information re: safe staffing ratios. I too would like to see if such an animal exists - this is truly important. My floor, especially on the weekends is very short and I feel there is a compromise to patient safty as well as a threat to my license. I think this area needs to be pursued with greater intensity than the BSN V. ADN issue, Elizabeth
