Here's what I think is the big problem with precepting: the whole idea of taking 1 patient, then 2, etc. No one ever seems to get past the first few patients. You're sinking or swimming with your patients, while your preceptor is busy with hers. It's too much extra work for the preceptor, and not a lot of consistent coaching and support for the orientee.
My preference was to have my student/orientee take my whole load along with me. The first day they would only shadow. I could explain what I was doing and why I was doing it. The orientee would gradually assume more of the work while I shadowed. That way I was always right there to answer questions, troubleshoot and catch any time-management issues. By the end of orientation, the orientee should feel fairly comfortable to handle a full load, because they've already been doing it.
It's a bit far into your orientation, but you might run it past your preceptor. Whatever you decide to do, good luck.
