I am currently in school working towards my bachelor's in nursing. I have chosen to research the orientation process for new graduate nurses and even newly hired nurses.
I would like to get an idea of what your experiences were like on either or both sides if you have had both experiences.
If anyone would be willing to answer some questions regarding this issue and email the answers to me I would be so very grateful.
Please include: amt of experience, department/specialty
Describe your orientation experience as a new nurse?
What was your relationship like with your preceptor? How about with the staff?
What if anything could have been improved?
Were you comfortable with communicating open and honestly with your preceptor and your supervisor about what you wanted to learn or what was lacking in your learning experiences?
What do you feel could have been done to improve the orientation experience?
As a preceptor how did you feel towards your orientee? Were there times when you found communication challenging? What barriers if any were present that may have hindered the relationship? What do you feel could have been done to improve the preceptor experience?
Please send your responses to firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you so so very much. I will be eternally grateful to any who respond!
