Clinical Expectations

When it comes to accelerated BSN program clinicals, your clinical instructors and preceptors often set the tone for the type of experiences you will receive during your rotations. It is important to build rapport and trust with these individuals and be respectful of their time and efforts. Therefore, you should always be punctual and professional.

Your clinical instructors and preceptors will teach you the critical-thinking and decision-making skills required to succeed in clinical practice. And, because everyone learns and retains information differently, it is important to have open communications with them so they understand how you best learn. Also, if you are struggling with certain content, do not hesitate to ask for clarification.
