I love teaching, I'm passionate about nursing and love sharing information education with others.
I love enthusiastic students, students who are wanting to know more about what we do in my facility, who are willing to get involved with all aspects of a patient care. I'll go out of my way with those students to involve them in any patient or specialist care that I can
I do not like students who expect to be drip fed. take the opportunity to find out stuff on your own, I dont mind asking specialist questions about my area, but seriously if you are asking me basic stuff you can find out on your own, dont be getting snippy when i point you at the text books.
Does having a student add to my work load? Yes. However that can be both good and bad. It encourages me to think about what I am doing, clinical rationale etc however when they expect to be drip fed, its tiring and really painful
