I'm concerned about the 2 very different approaches that my preceptors have. By the 2nd day, my first preceptor wanted me to do almost all of the patient care and documentation, as well as multidisciplinary rounds. I was overwhelmed but also very excited! The second preceptor was a little more cautious, and held me back more (no documentation, no multidisciplinary rounds, no ventilatory suctioning, etc...). I like both preceptors, but I'm scared that the 2 different styles are going to conflict... How do I hold back with one and then put all the gears on with the other? Also, they have some different expectations, which seem minor... but may cause conflict. For example, one wants me to reposition the patient q2h while the other wants me to reposition q3h. One wants me to avoid double documenting, the other encourages me to overdocument to avoid legal ramifications...
Today, I asked preceptor #2 to clarify something... and I think I ended up pointing out something that preceptor #1 was not doing correctly (this was not intended at all!) Now preceptor #2 wants to talk to #1..... and I am really worried about the conflict this may cause.
So there are a number of issues here... I don't know what I should do. Should I work it out with the preceptors, contact my instructor.... or what?
Any input would be greatly appreciated!!
