  1. Definitely works! My original MedSurg unit became specialized in Oncology. We switched from 1:5 to 1:4. That allows more time to research any new patient's history. I get to be more hands on and less time at a computer.

    One of my hospital's volunteers is applying to her college's BSN program and has requested that I sign and confirm volunteer hours. My nurse manager says any RN can do it independently and has no objections to the matter. I really enjoy working with ...
