Well, none of us were there. And despite being asked several times, the OP has not given ANY details that tell us what happened. So we do not know whether it was legitimate or not. We do know that she says that 2 of the school staff told her she was wrong and they do presumable have more information]
Sorry that you had such a bad time in Nursing School. But we still have no data from the OP about what actually occurred
[/Quote] I have been a nurse for 8 years and have precepted many, many times. I was so good at it, I was promoted to the Clinical Educator after only a few years. So I do not buy the whole I have a full patient load and now have to deal with a student complaint. If you don't like, don't volunteer to precept. If precepting is mandatory for your employer, then work somewhere else. Don't ruin this poor student's life and make them question life choices just because you're unhappy. And for gosh sakes, let's be nice to each other and stop tearing each other apart.
Many, if not most nurses in my experience do not "volunteer" to precept, they are required to do so.
And on the topic of tearing people down, why would you assume that the preceptor, and her instructors are all in the wrong when the OP hasn't even given any details of what happened. You know, Innocent until proven guilty. Why are you tearing them down without any evidence?
