Just curious if this is going on nationwide. Do travelers precept your full time staff?

I have traveled and knew more than the old staff and the new staff. I would never take on the responsibility of training for the hospital.

Don't know where you are working... but get ready to make a move.

I've seen it happen on occasion ...especially when the traveler and the new hire are both very experienced.

Been there done that,

I was asked to precept by the nurse manager so I thought I wo9uld help out. Now I am feeling the backlash from the FT staff.

We are being asked frequently to precept over the FT staff and they are feeling inadequate and unappreciated. I don't want to cause any animosity.

Not in my NICU or in the ER where I was a tech.

Maybe it is a shortage area? Not quite sure whether to go ahead. By the votes so far it doesnt seem that common. Maybe I will mention this to the supervisor.

Are you going to stay in the same facility for long?

If not, I guess there's not much to worry since people rotates, and who knows the other FT staff might not be there when you return, and you won't bump into each other?

After all, you are just taking order from the nurse manager and do your job.
