I think it depends on the hospital, the culture, and your coworkers. I am working in a Intermediate Care Unit. The hospital is in a nice location, and while I do take care of the critically ill, the patient's aren't as sick as some hospitals. The ratio is 1 nurse to 3 patients. I really like my coworkers and the hospital culture and want to stay at my hospital. I feel like I fit with my unit and the people there. That makes all the difference. This is my 3rd job as a nurse, it took a few tries.
