APN Preceptors

  1. 1
    I am in an FNP program where you have to find your own preceptors for rotation and I live in the competitive Chicagoland area So I guess my question for APN's would be the reasoning why you would or would not precept. Oh and if you are an APN living in the Chicagoland area are you looking to precept

    Best bet: join your state's APN association - they have a list of potential preceptors throughout the state.

    As for the why's and why-nots. Well imagine I work in a training facility and the MD in the next cubicle has a resident. The MDs schedule is automatically reduced from 18 to 10 so he and the resident have time to discuss the cases - allow for the resident to lookup stuff - allow for a great teaching encounter.

    Now lets say I work in the cubicle next to the MD and I have a student NP to precept. My schedule never reduces, I have to see 18+ and still find time to help you discuss each case you do and allow you all of the leeway you deserve, yet be close enough to help steer any decision making. I personally love teaching. It makesme better, it make you better, it gives patients incredible care. Unfortunately, I just can't work any harder than I already do. I'm all in with 10-12-15 hour days already and only doing my own stuff. You deserve mouch more time than I have to give.

    Hope it helps perspective.
