WOCN preceptorship

Posted

I am about to enroll into a WOC program and I see that I will have to have 120 hours with a preceptor. Have any of you done this before and can give me ideas on how to get those hours in when working a Mon-Fri, 40 hr/week job? :unsure:

Talk to your employer and see if they will give you admin/education leave so you don't have to use your own vacation time. It can be difficult depending on where you live to find WOCN's working on the weekends to fulfill that requirement. I unfortunately, had to use my own PTO.

How did it go, with scheduling your hours? Did you find any weekend preceptors? I'm about to apply and I am in the same situation with scheduling hours.
