I love students! Bring 'em on. We have a group of students who come in on Mondays and Tuesdays, and I am now working with my second SN who has a clinical immersion class - yep she's all mine 2 days a week for the next month! :hatparty:
I found out while I was in nursing school
, that I loved teaching, I worked through the college library as a tutuor and had a grand time. Since then every job I've had, the ones I have been most happy in were the ones I could teach. And it didn't matter who I got to teach, patients, family members, students, colleagues, or docs.
I always remember how hard it was in the beginning, so much to be responsible for, so much to know, and way too much to worry about. I try to be available, and find stuff either for the students to do or see. Especially important, I try to help the students connect the dots between what we do and why.
