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.
