The state I work in does not designate an actual staffing ratio at this time. I work in a level 2 and well baby nursery. Can you share with me what state you are in and what your staffing ratios are in the well newborn nursery? Specifically, how many well babies per RN...Thank you.

I have heard up to 8 in well baby nurseries, but not mandated by the state or anything, just hospital protocol.

Our new policy according to our union contract is 6-8 per RN, it's not really enforced though since we don't have enough staff.
