I'm new here, and don't know if this question has been asked before.... please bear with me.
I don't know if there are any other students in their final year of their nursing program who are experienceing this as well. I am looking forward to graduation and being done school, but am overwhelmed when trying to decide on my preceptorship.
I know that different schools call it different things... our preceptorship is our last clinical experience before graduating. 8 weeks working one on one with a nurse, putting everything we have learned together.
Anyways, I am overwhelmed with all the decisions to make. What hosptial do I want to preceptor at, what area? I like peds, but wonder if I should do some med-surg nursing before specializing...
Is anyone else having trouble with all the options and decisions out there? Has anyone given you suggestions or advice on getting through to graduation?
