    Nursing Preceptorship Problem

    Thank you everyone for your input! I've noticed the more I talk about it, the more I realize I am just talking up OB more and more so there really shouldn't be a question to it anymore! I am going to put down OB for my first choice and see what happens! Thanks again.

    Nursing Preceptorship Problem

    I am a Senior nursing student in a BSN program and am looking forward to my preceptor ship next semester but need some advice. I cannot decide whether it is a good idea to do my preceptor ship in a specialty unit or not...I have mapped out the pros and cons, but it's still not clear to me. Here's my mapping so far, 1. Working on the OB floor/nursery - I am 98% sure that this is what I want to do in my career, I absolutely love it and actually cried when our 4 weeks of clinical were over. However, I know that working in OB would require more studying of general knowledge since I wouldn't be using it everyday as if I were on a Med Surg floor or something. So...Pro-I love it! Know I want to do it after grad, and doing a preceptor would most likely increase my chances of getting an OB job after graduation. Con -I would be working with less general knowledge all the time, possibly making it more difficult when it comes time to take my boards. 2. Working on a Med Surg floor - I am 98% sure that I do NOT want to do this when I graduate. But it might make sense to do something general so that I won't lose knowledge on medications or procedures when it comes to taking the boards. Pro - More across the board knowledge used everyday to help with passing the boards. Con - I really really don't like it and don't think I would enjoy my preceptor ship if I did this. Anybody have any advice for me? We need to sign up for preceptors within the next two weeks and I am still at a loss. Any advice would be appreciated! Thanks! :)

    Aspirations to be a Neonatal Nurse

    Hi all, I have always loved reading the posts on this site and couldn't help but notice how helpful everyone is! Hopefully someone can help me and describe any specialty training I would need to look into to work in the NICU. I am currently in my second semester of my junior year in nursing school...BSN program and have always wanted to work in the NICU. If anyone can help steer me in the right direction, that would be great! Thanks! -Michelle
