Tonight at work I just got an email sayihg that I would be getting a nursing student to precept. Then I had an "oh, crap" moment; how am I going to teach a student? Even though, I've been a nurse almost three years, I don't feel like I know anything.
I learned in nursing school that I just don't retain information from books; that practical experience is what sticks with me. So I was wondering if anyone know of any good video CE/educational sites for nurses? I'd love to continue my education in a way that is most beneficial to my particular way of learning.
Thanks for any help you can provide!

Have you talked to the Educator in your facility? Does your state require continuing education? There is a lot of stuff online and Western Schools offers it via mail as well. I am concerned that you had no training to be a preceptor. First I would search for help on that task then go for the continuing ed. Right now you know more than the student.
