I'm wondering from your preceptor/preceptee points of view, what is appropriate during
does preception involve having your own patients by your fifth shift?
how many of your own patients should you have?
how do you contend with each preceptor insisting that her/his way is the right way?
what is an appropriate staff to patient ratio when preception is complete?
I am precepting at a rural hospital with a vast range of patients 0-100 yrs with every conceivable illness/disease/surgery imaginable. Perhaps there are other questions I should be asking as well. Any input will be appreciated. It's my first job and I'm just not sure what is or is not acceptable practice.
