Am in my adult rotation clinical now. I have 2 NP's who are my preceptors. Both are very good, very experienced. But somehow my clinical experience on some days just isn't all that hot. I have to beg for hours, and just don't seem to see that much of a variety of patients.
The other half of the clinical is in an acute rehab type nursing home facility. The patients are very acutely ill a lot of the time. It seems my preceptors have me doing the routine chart checks, while they work the harder patients ...I just sometimes don't feel I get the chance to work thorugh the really tougher patients. Maybe they don't think I'm ready ..I just don't know.
All I wonder is what if our "school" clinical experience is not that hot? Does it really matter after graduation? One of mypreceptors seems to say that I really won't learn "the real deal" until I'm out ...i don't know what to think.
