I met my preceptor today for the nurse externship this summer...and I'm very excited! She's only been out of school for a year, but everyone tells me that she is a great nurse and that I'll learn a lot from her. We went out to dinner today, and I think we're going to get along great. She's my age, which is fun, because I think we'll have a lot in common and I'll be able to relate to her much better than someone twice my age.
All in all, I'm ten times more excited than I was before, because it's real now that I'll be in the ED this summer. I've met my preceptor, so there's no way I'm dreaming it up! :)
