Why I Chose This Book:
This summer I am taking on my new role as nursing preceptor! Nurse orientation is such an interesting & fascinating process, so of course I’m using my time off to try to study & get ready 😉
This book was a quick, easy, relatable read with constructive ideas & good goals for the orientation process. I’m sure I will continue to refer back for fresh ideas. I appreciated the insight and encouragement prior to beginning this new role on my unit 🙂
