I was initially honored that my nursing school and former professor, would consider me for an adjunct teaching position, but now I think they are desperate for anyone to do it. I interviewed for an assistant to the clinical professor, but was told I would have my own class of 10 students for clinicals 2 days a week, for a summer session in their LVN program. I was super excited to do it and asked them for 2-3 days of paid training to follow the current clinical professor, so I could get a feel for what is expected of me as the instructor and an idea of a structure for my own class. I'm a med-surg nurse and work prn, so I would need to schedule myself off for those couple of days. I got a email that the plan is for a professor to attend the first 2 days of clinical with me, to orient me to the instructor role. I do not want to start off my own class being "trained" to do the job. I believe this will show my students that I don't have a clue about what I am doing. I would prefer to start my class alone in the teaching role and talk to them about how I am new to teaching and have many things to learn as we go forward together, but still maintain my legitimacy as the teacher. What are your thoughts? Am I simply being paranoid or having cold teacher feet?
