I'm starting my last year of nursing school
in a couple of weeks and am trying to figure out what area I want to do my preceptorship in. We don't start our main clinical rotations until this year (OB, peds, 2 med-surg, and psych) but we are supposed to know what we want to do for a preceptorship by October! I have a couple of areas that I am interested in, but how can you know until you get there! Has anyone else been in this situation and if so how did you pick your area?
I am interested in surgery, hospice or oncology, and critical care. Does anyone have any suggestions for making a decision? I have called the surgery supervisor at the hospital I work in, in order to observe more surgery and talk with some of the nurses there. I guess I'm just confused and look forward to hearing any ideas or experiences others can share.
