Contribute to Excellence in Nursing
Behind every nursing student is a skilled preceptor. Preceptors mentor and train future nurses, so that they may better care for our communities. Our goal to make the precepting experience valuable and beneficial to both you and the student, with as little disruption to your clinical flow as possible.
What is a Preceptor?
- A preceptor is an experienced practitioner who teaches instructs, supervises, and services as a role model for a student or graduate, for a set period of time, in a formalized program
- Preceptors provide valuable teaching and learning experiences and role models safe patient care using evidence-based practice
- Preceptors provide a toolbox of resources and guides new practitioners in adapting to unit culture
Significance of the Preceptor
- Preceptors are often the most significant link in the orientation of new practitioners
- Preceptors play a dual role as both educator and practitioner
- Preceptors build the bridge that takes new graduates from the educational environment to the clinical workforce
- Preceptors may be the first role mode that new practitioners see
The Benefits of Preceptorship
The College of Nursing is able to offer benefits to individuals who contribute substantially to the education and training of our students by extending adjunct faculty status to them. If you are interested in applying to be an adjunct faculty member, please contact: Dr. Lauri Linder (firstname.lastname@example.org).
This form allows us to collect the data we are required to collect to maintain our accreditation. We need every preceptor to complete it when they begin precepting for us.
You do not have to fill it out every time you take a student. However, it would be helpful if you fill it out again if any information changes (job changes, receiving new/additional credentials, and the like).
