    I'd be stoked to be paired up with a nurse that actually cared if I learned.

    This is great! I would love to have a preceptor like you that is fully involved and goes above and beyond with my clinicals! Who cares if it's a 'small' homework assignment on top of my other homework I may have, I would rather come prepared, knowing the familiar meds, than having to work on that while we're doing rounds. Good job!

    To be honest I could either see my classmates either being irritated or happy that their preceptor was going above and beyond in terms of learning experiences. While I was in my high acuity clinicals, my preceptor actually made me do a care plan for her on a patient and look up every drug on the medication reference manual that I was not familiar with before administering them. My peers were lambasting her choice in teaching methods, mainly towards the care plan, but it did give me a better idea of what exactly I should be looking for from an outside perspective.

    I'd love to have a preceptor like you! I will be in preceptorship next month before graduating in May with an ADN. Facilities for preceptorship are extremely limited here, and I fear being put in a facility where the entire staff with the exception of 1 or 2 RNs are downright rude to students.

    I will be doing an externship on a BMT unit in a few months and I can tell you she was probably thankful and excited that you did this. At least in my program, we spent maybe an hour total talking about BMT so there's not much exposure in school yet so much to know.
