does every school do precepting hours?Register Today!
- by paramed1 Apr 4, '11Hi everyone,
Just a quick question....I am at the end of my nursing program with a 108 hours of precepting left. I was just wondering if every school requires this, or if it unique to my program.
Thanks for the responses!

However, more and more schools are requiring something along these lines as they seem to be good learning experiences that help prepare a new grad for the realities of the work world.
