As the only RN on a mixed Med-Surg/Peds unit, taking 5 to 6 of my own patients (with no tech on most days), am I responsible for the actions of the LPN? We are not completing team nursing, just each of us individually takes our own patients.
Salary is a definite factor for those looking for a job. It also plays a big factor in retaining nurses. But there are other factors that may impact retention rates even more. Work environment, safe nurse-patient staffing ratios, and job satisfaction may be more important to the nurse who is trying to decide whether or not to leave.
