Wow, sounds stressful for BOTH of you. I am being precepted now as an RN, and it is so stressful. There are so many terms for that are synonymous with each other, abbreviations, nick names. Yesterday during an intubation in the chaos I though I heard the doctor ordered 100 of sux, my preceptor told me to go pull sux, I was like...WHAT IS SUX???? ( I may have been a little stressed!) ... She said just go tell someone you need it.... And I sux...cessfully pulled the correct med. ( first intubation witnessed.... Terminology is a huge help. My preceptor and I laughed later how bad the day did sux, and now I am on line researching the med and intubations so I am better prepared when it does happen. I did have to request a change of preceptor at the beginning, because the first one wouldn't let me do anything.... Not even press the "weigh" button on the bed.... I knew I would not learn with her . I amquite thankful for the one I have now, she picks assignents that challenge me .... Is not easy, but I am learning a lot!!! Good luck!
