Starting Clinicals in Chamberlain, had a question on what to do

So I'm starting Clinicals (hopefully) I'm having issues with the preceptor already on week 1. I'm going under the assumption I'll be able to start this week. Getting a preceptor was difficult, took me 8 months so I wasn't in class for a long time. Now that I have a preceptor...what am I supposed to do in clinicals? I feel completely lost, I'm getting nervous thinking about it.

If you go in to the main portal screen, click on Resources. Then click on My Degree & Resources, then Post-Licensure Practicum. You'll see a list, select MSN FNP Immersion & Practicums. Scroll down until you see the document entitled "FNP Practicum Experiences". This document spells out everything you need to experience for each practicum. Give this to your preceptor so he/she can make sure you're covering all the skills & experiences in the list. Obviously, there may be times when you can't get them all, that's why some are repeated in the following courses. Just make sure you are seeing patients that cover the entire life span, especially peds, so you get enough hours with each age group.

Thanks, tomorrow is going to be my first day. What should I be doing to get my E-Logs and Case Presentations ready weekly?
