So I have been on the critical care unit precepting with a nurse for about 7 weeks. Today another student nurse from another school comes to the floor for one day and asks to follow our patients. I wanted to say no, but that wasn’t my place. She had her own patient he was just not as critical as ours, so she wanted to check them out. I just felt like my toes were being stepped on. But it ended up being a good day. I just felt overprotective about letting another student touch my patients. Plus, I think my nurse felt overwhelmed by having two students.
