  1. 1 Where did you do your preceptorship and why did you love it? I am looking at selecting my rotation, and I can't decide. I have always been told to try to get into the place you may want to work at some point... but I don't really know, yet.

    So.. thoughts?!?

    I wanted to work in the ED, so that is where I opted to do my practicum. It was very helpful as I now work in the ED, a different hospital than where I precepted at, but it gave me a good idea of what I was in for when I got a job.

    As a terminology clarification: The student is doing a preceptorship, but the staff RN she shadows is doing the precepting.
