What an incredible post. I wish it was appropriate to give a copy of it to my preceptor when i get one, as a "please don't eat me
, just understand that i am a rookie
" plea,but I know it is not! I am currently looking for my first RN position and exposing my weak points to a seasoned nurse scares me witless because i am a perfectionist who knows that no one is perfect. I am very hard on myself and am hoping to get a preceptor who recognizes my effort and is there for me technically as well as holistically. I am very honest and know that the only way to get the most out my precepting experience is to be transparent. I want to learn to be a competent, confident nurse, without being torn down in the process. Are you available to come to CT Ruby?LOL!!! no really?
