    My Preceptee concerns me

    Thank you and will do. I need to remind myself to always remain patient. This student nurse recently forgot how to prime and hang IV bags and even scan them in. I just try to keep in mind that everything will come in time for him.

    My Preceptee concerns me

    Preceptee concerns anyone?? I have this student nurse who I have been working with for the past 4 weeks now. I told him to draw 3 units of insulin. I went in to see how he was doing and saw him reach for the 5ml syringe-probably to draw up 3ml of insulin... yikes. Stopped him, and then proceeded to show him where the right syringe was. It's crazy bc I have seen this student draw up insulin from the appropriate syringe before and give the right dose. Maybe he had a brain fart. But now I'm wondering if should I notify his clinical instructor of the incidence? Does anyone have some tips to guide student nurses and help them critically think before doing something? This is my first time precepting a student nurse btw.
