o.k. that may sound crazy but my preceptor will often be shouting commands at me or giving me updates this person got a consult on this or is going for this test, while I'm in the midst of something else. I've also seen her run around during the day literally doing one thing while talking on the phone trying to get something set up or such about another. I know that's just how you have to move because you DON't have any time to waste.
So my question is how long does it take to develop this ability? My little brain at this point can only seem to focus on one thing at a time. Usually if I'm in the midst of doing something (say I'm looking up info on a pt or performing care, insert whatever here) and she is rambling at me about something else I DON'T remember what she told me at that moment. I might retain bits and peices and not the WHOLE thing and then later reask which - well you guessed it doens't go over so well.
So how long do you think it takes to develop the ability to do this? ahahahahah
