Nurse Practitioner Student Needs Obstetrics Preceptor

  1. 0 Hello,
    I am in the major Seattle-Tacoma area, but my family nurse practitioner program is through Indiana State University. I am in need of 50 hours of clinical time, but this area is very saturated with students from local schools. My school does not find a preceptor for you; you have to find your own. I have contacted a great deal of medical providers, but so far they all have said no, many of them already have students from the local university. I have been a Registered Nurse since 1998. I am in my 3rd semester of the program, and I am feeeling quite a bit of pressure to find a preceptor. Just to give you an idea, it took nearly 2 years to find my current preceptor, who is a wonderful preceptor, but she does not see that many pregnancies. I can get all the GYN experience I need with my current preceptor, but the OB is really worrying me because without the hours I cannot graduate.

    Does anyone else have any ideas or know of someone who would love to give a struggling student a hand and precept?

    Thank you.
