    Preceptorship here too! They let us pick where we want...it can be anywhere..ER, ICU..although they told us if we pick ER or ICU we have to be on it bc those are difficult areas....they also say pick a preceptorship where you would like to work bc they will most likely hire you on

    Our school doesn't call it anything. It's just the preceptorship. It's not a separate class. All our classes end a month early, and then the last month is precepting fulltime (144 hours).

    I wouldn't want to precept in the same area where I'm externing. It would just be more of the same. I want to get that whole "well rounded" thing everyone's always talking about. :chuckle That's why I'm probably going to request Med/Surg for my preceptorship. Although, ICU is mighty tempting after I rotated through last week.
