Is anyone a preceptor for L&D? I start my nexternship next week and I am a little nervous about what my preceptor will expect me to know my first day. I will graduate in December from an associate program, but have only had a few clinical hours on a L&D unit. My biggest fear is checking cervical dilation. Is it hard to gauge? Will that be something I will be taught during my nexternship? Any pointers you could give me including what I might want to review before I go in would be helpful. I keep reading over my OB class notes and in the book, but for some reason I just don't think it can prepare me enough for the hands on that I look so forward to! I am so excited to start this wonderful journey!
