  1. Overwhelmed and lost

    I talked to my first preceptor. Asked questions. Made it clear when I was uncomfortable. Asked my preceptor to check up on me, or go with me when I wanted to be sure that I was doing something correct. My first preceptor did not do anything on my ha...
  2. preceptor questions?

    I never asked to switch preceptors. but it came to the point where my preceptor relied on me to do the work, and because I'm so fairly new, there were things that I still need to get used to where things are... people started to notice so my last cou...
  3. preceptor questions?

    I spoke up after the third day of precepting. I knew my preceptor wasn't helping me. I was informed that because of scheduling I couldn't get a new preceptor. but after the beginning of this week is when everyone in management realize that I was with...
  4. Overwhelmed and lost

    Lol I am just asking for suggestions/ advice/ tips from more experience out there. Maybe I wasnt clear enough about being overwhelmed on my first week, rather first few days of precepting. I know I still have a long way to go. And just like how peop...
  5. Overwhelmed and lost

    sorry my English isn't very good. I graduated two years ago, but wasn't able to get my license until fall of last year. so now that I got job I'm rusty on my skills. hence me asking my preceptor to follow up and check on me when I feel uncomfortable ...
  6. Overwhelmed and lost

    like I said I don't need my hand held. I need to know that I am doing something correctly when I feel unsure about it, hence the reason why I tell my preceptor to go with me and check if I am doing something right. I'm not asking my preceptor to be m...
  7. Overwhelmed and lost

    to be honest, I don't know what my preceptor does. I spend more than half the day looking for my preceptor. I'm just grateful for the other nurses around to help orient. they did a mass hire. so there is a bunch of new grads on the floor being orient...
  8. Overwhelmed and lost

    I understand what you are saying. but I don't think that is the case. I've made it clear to my preceptor when I have questions about my practice. I've asked my preceptor several times, to watch me, even if it's outside the door or right beside... to ...
  9. preceptor questions?

    sorry if I'm not very clear in my explanation. what I meant is that if I take my meds in and my preceptor isn't around when I have a question and I'm already in my ppe with my meds, I can't bring my meds back out. I had to use the call light to try a...
  10. preceptor questions?

    I'm a new grad and was on my third day orienting when my preceptor started to hide from me when it came to our patients. they would tell me to get the meds and that they'd be right behind me. as soon as I look to ask for help my preceptor was gone. a...
  11. preceptor questions?

    no I'm not exaggerating. this is my first job. I want to make sure that I am doing things the right way. it's better for me to get into the habit of doing things the correct way in the beginning. so yeah if I have questions I'm gonna ask. any of my ...
  12. preceptor questions?

    4-5 patients usually. and nothing major going on with the patients, because I was the one who took care of them all.. one of our patients went to the OR and my preceptor admitted another patient, but because they had me doing the work, I didn't get a...
  13. preceptor questions?

    yesterday was my third day precepting. and yesterday my preceptor left me alone with four patients... then we got an admit. I'm still learning... and there are things that I'm still not comfortable with, so I would ask my preceptor to just watch and...
  14. preceptor questions?

    so generally speaking, 6 weeks to precept for a new grad.. maybe more or less... how long into precepting should your preceptor leave you alone to handle the patients? and how often should the preceptor check on their "preceptees". should the precept...
  15. Overwhelmed and lost

    I am on my second day with my preceptor. I know it's overwhelming for both my preceptor and I. but I feel more lost and overwhelmed than anything. my preceptor is very nice... but I feel like she's not teaching. I ask her to show me what she did orde...
