Could any current OHSU RN's offer insight as to typical RN to patient ratio's, scheduling practices, and acuity? This would be for a med-surg or step-down unit, not critical care. I looked at the ONA contract but these topics were (not surprisingly) not covered.

I'm considering OHSU, but with very young children, I would prefer 3 12-hour shifts like Sun/Mon/Tues. Are schedules like that offered, or at least very predictable?

I am coming from a level one trauma center with a BSN and 5+ years experience. Thank you.

Most floors at OHSU give you a pattern, so your schedule is the same over two weeks. Some are self scheduled. It’s rare not to have to work some Fridays and Saturdays.
