Hello, long time listener, first time caller:
Preceptorships are coming up next semester, and i have put in my first choice as ED. i absolutely loved my out-rotations there, and an RN even offered to be my preceptor when the time came. The problem is, there are 5 other students that have opted for the ED also, and there are only 2 spots open. Does anyone have any advice? Is there anything i can do to make myself shine? Can i write a well-thought out letter? Should i annoy the heck out of my instructors? Should i write an annoying, shiny letter to my instructors?
i have already discussed with my instructor earlier this semester about my preference, and she told me my grades looked fine, and she wouldn't be worried at all if i was in that dept. We have to perform ATI tests in different areas to show where we are in school, and i haven't had to re-take any of them (i can elaborate about ATI if needed). My grades are NOT the best, however, they have been good enough.
Anyway, thanks for your time in advance, and if anyone has any insight, that would be awesome. Or even a great story about how they DIDN'T get what they wanted, but it worked out well anyway. Thank you!!!
