  1. 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.
