One thing I have learnedRegister Today!
- by SunshineDaisy Apr 23Is that I LOVE teaching! Not like in a classroom type teaching, but teaching my patient's and teaching the students on the floor! I don't know if it's because I know my preceptor is there to correct me if I am wrong or what, but I am having a good time. Almost every one of my precepting days we have had other students doing their clinical, and I have gotten to teach them things! I have taught them how to do straight caths and Foleys, how to set up the sterile field for delivery (not the OR one, the room one), how to get a patient prepped in the OR for a c-section. Plus all the teaching I have done for my patients. Its awesome to see the little light bulbs go on!

- Apr 24 by donkThat's great!! It's an amazing way to reinforce the skills you have and teaching someone else under an instructor watch helps build confidence I would think. I hope I get an opportunity to do that as well.

- Apr 24 by classicdameGreat. All nurses are teachers, but there is a great variance in capability. Consider getting certified as AHA course instructor at some point.
