Hello everyone. I will be starting my 5th semester as a nursing student and have to decide on a hospital where I want to spend my one-on-one preceptorship at in the Sacramento area. Which hospitals do you think will give me the best learning experience? Also, should you basically precept in a hospital where you intend on working as a new grad? Thanks.

Kaiser Permanente is the big one around here, with locations in both North and South Sacramento, as well as Roseville and Rocklin. However, I think UC Davis is still the best for what you want.

UC Davis, for sure, will give you the widest variety of experiences (depends somewhat on the unit). Precepting in a hospital can give you an "in" in getting hired there, but it's far from a sure thing and often has no benefit at all.
