Really? *sigh*

Just finished my first week at my new job (or "jorb" if you're a Homestar Runner fan).
So far...meh.
The situation is partially my fault because I allowed it to happen; but, in my defense, I don't want to come off as "that guy" before I'm even out of orientation. Also, my preceptor is, apparently, a former RN school instructor so she may be automatically taking on that role. Anyway, what I'm trying to say is, there are several factors at work here. That being said.....

Earlier this morning, we get orders from the Doc for the antibiotic Flagyl and she asks me, "Now, have you ever given Flagyl before?" Jesus christ on a popsicle stick, really?! Now, in the grand scheme of things I haven't been a nurse for very long but, I have been a nurse.

More to come I'm sure.

HILARIOUS that your preceptor is a former RN teacher.

You should totally ask her to go over basic handwashing techniques.

I smell a smartass retort to her antics in 3...2...1...

A preceptor serves as your mentor, to guide you through orientation. Showing you the ropes, and apparently giving you the pop quizzes that make you soil yourself because it makes you think of nursing school.
