I think you need to take a deep breath and relax. I have this feeling you are the obsessing type of student (a typical nursing trait). Which isn't a bad thing.....but can overwhelm you, and the person who is teaching you.....with your inquiring mind, your quick intelligence, and thirst of knowledge. I'll bet your rapid fire line of questioning can be exhausting......and I mean that in the best way.
I love students like that but it is just as important to learn how to rein in that enthusiasm sometimes.
I think that rapid firing of a steady stream of questions can be overwhelming to these preceptors. I think if there is a problem between the preceptors....you need to stay out of it, I think the difference between turning q2 or q3 shouldn't cause an international incident
......just so that the patient gets turned. Make a note which one likes which and remember you will set your own practice rules when you "grow up" (and I mean that lovingly) to be an RN with your own patients to care about.
Sometimes the nurse that allows you
to do almost all of the patient care and documentation, as well as multidisciplinary rounds. I was overwhelmed but also very excited!
isn't the best "TEACHER" and is just enjoying not having to care for patients that day.......and the preceptor that is more cautious and
was a little more cautious, and held me back more (no documentation, no multidisciplinary rounds, no ventilatory suctioning, etc...).
Is the preceptor that you will gain the most "learning" from even though less "exciting".
Maybe the clarification you asked about is something you should NOT EVEN be doing right now...........just food for thought.
Just like anything else.......sometimes we need to adapt how we learn to the style of the teacher or adapt our nursing style for the patient. It's about being adaptable. I think asking your instructor how best to handle this.... is the first step. Stay out of the unit politics. Keep a list of questions that pertain to each preceptor and ask that preceptor specifically unless it really can't wait......or go to your instructor.
Organization is key and I don't know if I have ever given you brain sheets.....they are a combination of what I have done and others have done (Daytonite, RIP).......here are a few.
