I had a LONG orientation.... I had two weeks of spending a few days following every provider on my team. Then I had 2-3 weeks of following them and taking patients and then telling them what I would do before going in with them. Lastly I got to ramp up. I got to pull the holds out of my schedule at my leisure . I had 6 months to loose them all. I see on average 12-16 pts a day...with about an hour of my time blocked for administrative tasks a day. I will say that it has been a smooth transition.
I think using the term "tweaking" hours is a stretch in this case. if they are truly adding 8-9 hours weekly of clinical time to their log that they did not do. I also think that it is frustrating to read from instructors on this post that it is purely the responsibility of the preceptor to approve these hours. That is an awkward place to put an someone doing nursing education a free HUGE favor that slows down their practice. This is why I am hesitant to start taking students. When I do, I will likely stick to the program I graduated from since I know there is moderate oversight from their instructors
