I get it, students slow you down..... I greatly appreciate any preceptor willing to take me on because I know it will slow them down. Which is why I do what I can to offset that for example, I'll chart for them (which is common among NP students). Or I may offer to do little things here and there in the office that I know help the staff..... but I'm at a place right now that is treating me and the other NP students more like employees.
It's expected that we chart and send prescriptions (which I'm fine with, that's great practice) but what I'm not so okay with is the other stuff: get urine sample, run UA's, give vaccines, assist with procedures (in the way an MA would-not like doing the procedures just handing the doctor stuff), obtaining labs, etc.
Overall, I'm not THAT bothered by it because I don't plan on working in the field (of the place I'm doing these rotations) and the staff is really nice, but is kinda the principle you know?
I'm supposed to be doing NP student stuff all day, not nurse stuff all day, I'm not practicing to be a nurse. Time I spend doing those tasks is taking away from my NP student tasks. Just curious if anyone else has had a similar experience.
