to change a lightbulb?
Ha ha. I'm kidding. I like students. I just graduated a year ago and I still "feel" for students. I just wondered if you think the following is standard and o.k.
Today I had 6 patients (a light load for our tele floor) and 2 third year students to supervise. The instructors required that we supervise all IVPB's, Injections,Hanging IV solutions (NaCl only), and that we double checked every med for them. Also, I had to get them into the Pyxxis as they had no access. I was a wreck! It's like the blind leading the blind! I feel somewhat competent,but not that much. Every RN on the floor had 1 or 2 students apiece. I am THRILLED that there are still students out there. I just wonder if I am getting into legal problems potentially here. I fully intend to precept voluntarily when I have 1 and 1/2 to 2 years of solid experience under my belt. Is it too soon, or am I being overly concerned?
