yes,i love my job! RN on a very busy ortho unit, i usually have 3-5 pt's on days, if we are working with LPN's then we have to "resource" their pt's also. on my weekends(nocs) i might have 6-7 if we are really busy. i work a point 7which comes out to 3days one week then 4 days the next. as far as overime goes,it also depends on what my shift was like,ie: did i get any trauma's in, how many of my pt's are surgicals,etc.
