Hi! This week my unit manager called me into his office and told me that he wants me to precept our floor's new hire. I was thrilled because education is a passion of mine! However, here is a little of my background...I graduated May 2013 and I have not even hit the one year mark as an RN! I have worked in patient care (PCT/CNA) for about 5 years. I feel this tremendous about of responsibility and pressure to ensure our new staff member has a remarkable orientation. I would like to hear from new grads/preceptors so I can give some advice and perspective on this situation. I personally had a mediocre orientation and I want to be a more proactive preceptor. How can I ensure this employee feels secure, successful, and empowered when I am still so new myself? Any and all feedback is appreciated!
