So I have to begin this with a statement that I am a Student nurse not an RN yet, however I much prefer primary nursing to team nursing. My experiences in hospitals that utilize team nursing has always seemed to be an RN doing a round of assessments, passing any meds the LVN couldn’t and then charting, rinse and repeat. I did not care for it. I think having one or two CNAs on the floor is very useful for helping with basic pt. care, especially in light of the fact that our pts. are not getting lighter. I like the California ratio laws personally.
