You are reading page 4 of Team nursing is causing many good nurses to leave any suggestions
The facility I've been at for over 2 years does team nursing. As an LPN it has been great experience. However, I graduate RN school in May and I am scared when I think about being responsible for 11-12 patients per shift (5-6 for RN, 6 for LPN...each one does meds & assessments) + 1 CNA for beds & baths. This is on day shift med/surg unit. I just don't think, being a new RN, I can handle those ratios. Everyone thinks since I have already been an LPN for awhile I will be fine. I am not so sure...
Anyway, does this sound like a heavy load of patients, or is this the average on med/surg??
