So I had a super cool moment recently.I ran into my former nursing professor. After some chit chat, she told me that there is now an extensive number of ICU/CCU preceptorship spots available to the ADN program... because of me.Say whaaat? At the time I was doing my preceptorship, there was only one critical care slot available. The manager of the facility was skeptical that ADN students could handle this particular unit which handled post-open heart surgery patients, ECMO, LVADs etc. etc. The spot was given to me and, unbeknownst to me, my performance changed the manager's mind. And to think all I cared about at the time was surviving, not killing anyone and hopefully get a job! (And, yes, I did get a job. I now work in the ICU.) So as corny as it may sound, you are not only representing yourself but also your school. You never know what doors open and close because of what you do in your clinical rotations and preceptorships, both for you and for others.
