Clinical Nurse student preceptor
Faculty Clinical Instructor, Nursing (Former Employee) – Irvine, CA – November 9, 2017
My job was to give structure and to guidance to BSN senior nursing students through their obstetric, labor & delivery, nursery, and post- partum clinical education course. I worked closely with the nursing staff and hospital unit leadership as we found clinical learning experiences for each student. Each day included assignment to the precepting RN in the various units (Labor, nursery, NICU, post- partum, lactation, and community Health), passing off essential nursing skills, discussing their patient care plan in post clinical conference with their peers, and presenting assigned current research topics. I worked closely with the program education directors in achieving the educational requirements. The hardest and most enjoyable part of the job was assisting the students in translating their clinical experiences into organized and directed patient care plans, which demonstrated their writing skills and understanding of the disease process, nursing interventions, and patient outcomes.
