For men the preceptors. Especially the OB/GYN.
If you do not have your free teachers squared away from the get-go you will be in trouble.
There is a cut-throat scamble for the free teachers and unless you're a very good weasel or uncle Sol is a doctor I would beware of signing on the dotted line.
As you may know some schools
give substantive help with this issue but most don't.
The reason why you hardly ever hear about this issue for especially male NP students is that those who have been lead on and snookered remain in the shadows asking themselves how they could be so trusting and why nobody cares.
A big reason why nobody care has to do with what you alluded to in your text. The demographics tell the tale. At EKU 90% of their graduating class are women.
You see with mant people if a problem doesn't impact them---oh well.
Be careful with this aspect of NP school so as not to be one of the "oh wells." In fact, have the school own up to the problem so you can be assured you will not be left by the wayside.
All too often NP students are on this site begging for preceptors to helo them at the last minute.
If your a male of the species, it's exponentially harder.
There I said it. I know the silence on this issue will again be deafening.
