Help, I need and RN preceptor!! Triad area

  1. 0
    Hi and thanks for taking the time to read,
    Ive recently been accepted into Davidson County Community College LPN-RN bridge program. For the clinical aspect of instruction, the student is responsible for securing their own preceptor in a acute care/med/surg setting for 120 hours each semester (total of 2 semesters). I need to find an RN in the triad area (Asheboro,Greensboro,High Point,Burlington, Siler City) that is willing to precept for me. As an LPN, I work under my own license and can give meds, do TXs, just about whatever you need me to do. Just think of it as having an extra set of hands for an entire shift! Ive contacted the education departments at all my local hospitals to find one with no success (either theyre not returning my phone calls,my emails, or theyre not in their office) If you can help me or have any suggestions, it would be greatly appreciated!

    Hello,

    Dont worry! I have just graduated from that program last month. I was in the same situation. I had gotten laid off a month before getting my acceptance letter. Work with the administrator (Karen). Let her know your situation. You have to be flexible. She did find me placement but it was a hour and a half commute for me both ways. I hope this helps, the best to luck to you.

    Thank you for replying!
    Where did you do your clinicals if you dont mind me asking? I live in central NC and cant find anything in Greensboro,High Point, Winston Salem, Thomasville, Asheboro, Kernersville,Lexington, Siler City or Burlington. Everyone keeps telling me they wont have any preceptors available or they wont renew thier contract with DCCC. Ive been in contact with Karen but she may be spread too thin because it takes her at least a week to get back to me on anything. Since recieving my acceptance letter, the mission to find a clinical site has been a significant source of stress in my life, I hope the rest of the program doesnt go this well :/

    No problem, I dont mind you asking. I live in Raleigh and I did my clinicals at Moore Regional in Pinehurst, NC. Karen does have her hands full. But majority of the time the delay is due to the facility. She is waiting for them to get back to her. This is very stressful. I know!!!! I was where you are a year ago. I wish you the best of luck. Stay positive and prayerful and keep doing what you are doing. Something will open up Im sure.
