I made it through the first day of my preceptorship!! My RN was so nice to me. She explained everything as she did it. I revised my objectives before going to the hospital. Then, she and the charge nurse helped me tweak them. I saw a lot of new things and learned a lot, too. The last 2 1/2 hours were rather hectic, but it was kind of fun. My feet were really tired after being on them for 12 straight (well, I did sit down briefly a time or two) hours. I will work 3 more shifts next week and then classes start back the next week.
Anyway, I just wanted to thank everyone for the advice on my objectives. And to let y'all know that I survived the first day!!:roll
