I appreciated how thorough yet calm Rob was, with a positive attitude throughout the challenges

The first impression a new nursing employee gets of the hospital unit is the Preceptor.  If that relationship does not go well, this can lead to a new employee not completing orientation or a shortened stay with the hospital.  I had the privilege of having Rob as my Preceptor.  I appreciated how thorough yet calm he was, with a positive attitude throughout the challenges.  His patience is a great asset.  He took the time to explain policies and ensured that I understood.  He was always available to answer questions.  When I spoke with other nurses he was Preceptor for during orientation, I got the same response from all of them.  I believe with Preceptors like him, a high retention rate is reachable.  As many new nurses and employees as possible should have the opportunity to be mentored by Rob.
