Preceptor Elaine RN

Yep I was chosen as a preceptor.  Now to start thinking about screwing up their eager minds..... Hahah I'm only joking. I'm looking forward to it.  This is a good way of helping with my enthusiasm and review of the basics.

I'm not perfect, it's a great way to make sure my practice evolves to higher quality.

My friend (who coincidentally also was chosen to do her consolidation in the ED) is helping me relive my experience of being ridiculously excited for Emerg.  It's cute to watch her prepare.  She is way too eager, by doing ACLS already, and an ECG course.  I didn't do that until AFTER I was done nursing school and working in the ED.


I hope she flourishes instead of the ED overwhelming her.

I'm sure you will do great. Just be nice, expect them to come prepared to learn and keep nudging (pushing) them every shift, even when they pretty much have it.

Ive had a mix of preceptor, and it was the ones that called me on my BS and pushed me when I needed it, that helped me to learn the most.

Good luck,
