I'm on my last day of dayshift orientation tomorrow, before going to nights. I want to give my day preceptor a thank you note for everything she's done. Is this an okay thing, or would it be considered a little overbearing (or weird?)
On the unit where I oriented as a new grad, it was tradition for the preceptor to have flowers sent to the orientee on the last day of orientation. It was the best kept secret on the unit, (perhaps the only secret because the orientee was always surprised. Of course, the orientee always followed up with a thank you note, and sometimes a gift.
Definately not weird at all to thank someone who has helped you out. I sent my preceptor flowers at the end of my orientation with a card that had a picture of painting that I had done so after the flowers died she would always know that she touched not only my career in a positive way but my heart as well.
