RN fairly new to LTC............

  1. what is a better ratio

    170 patients to 2 RN's on NIGHTS
    112 patients to 1 RN and 1RPN/LVN NIGHTS?

    what would be better for a RN fairly new to LTC but has 4 years OR nursing experience?

    The second ratio definitely sounds better since there will be 112 patients split between 2 licensed nurses.
