nurse : patient ratios (average and max)? Acuity ratios in that mix?

% of holds/admits you would be responsible for, or do they have a staffed holding area? If there is a holding area, how often would you be assigned to it (can be tortuous if it is often)? What is the average time before holds get a bed?

Will there be at least a foot of hall space available so I can squeeze between the stretchers, or will I have to play shuffleboard with the hall stretchers in order to pass through :lol2: ?

Will you be crossed trained for the trauma room? Or, is it the holy grail?

Wiil they offer, and pay for, certifications: ACLS, PALS, TNCC, CEN?

Will I be assigned a trained preceptor & does this preceptor receive some form of an incentive to train me?

When can I start??????

Good Luck
