An open letter to Preceptors:
Thank you for holding my hand on my first day. For making me feel welcome. For walking me through the simplest of tasks. For reminding me to breathe when you noticed my hands were trembling.
Thank you for greeting me with a smile each morning. For being genuinely happy to spend your day with me. For never making me feel like a burden.
Thank you for keeping me one step ahead of the surgeon. For patiently answering my millions of questions. For letting me begin to do things on my own. For helping me build my skills and my confidence.
Thank you for your kindness, patience, and generosity. Thank you for sharing your time and wisdom with me. Thank you for being my preceptor.
Much love and respect,
Your surgical tech student
Loran Britt, Student Representative SCSA
