So, after 5 weeks, I’m finally done with orientation/preceptorship. I had my first day alone yesterday(Friday), and I think it went pretty well. Saw three patients, spent about an hour on the phone, got all my paperwork done…overall it went well. Once I got started, I was fine, however, making that first phone call was a little nerve wracking. I know that will get better.
Monday I have another three patients on my schedule–including a wound vac that I’m covisiting on, a daily wound visit, and a pain management case. Should be interesting.
