    Do you think it is better to have one preceptor for your orientation so they can keep up on what you know and what you need to work on, or do you think it is better to have multiple preceptors so you get more exposure to a variety of different ways of getting the same job done?


    How boring is life without experience and variety? So much to be learned by varying interactions. Plus a single person runs the risk of complacency.

    In our area we use 1 experienced nurse for day shift and a different one for night shift the New nurse receives 3 weeks with each preceptor. That way it’s someone different but yet a continuation of what needs to be learned
