I finally got to preceptor! And it's great that she got to see the wonderful world of PreK-7. She was super competent and had great assessment skills. Fortunately she could do anything she was trained to do (confirmed that with her CI) so I handed her my sub book on day 3 and she did all the assessments (quite competently). She got to see tonsils with exudate, she got to auscultate wheezes live (as opposed to on the YouTubes), and we had a couple of fractures and what I swear will be pneumonia (mom took that away). Today was her last day. I will miss her. I didn't realize how much I miss having a competently trained second up here in the clinic.

Isn't it fun?  I love precepting nursing students!  If I had my way, I would go back to school and get my Masters in Nursing Education, and teach nursing school.  We used to get more nursing students each semester, but I only have two, for two days each, this semester.

I think it's awesome that the Large University considers school nursing integral to community health, thereby allowing about 20 of us up in here to have mentees.
