Preceptors are role models for professionalism and best practices in the clinical setting, socializing nurses into the work group, while educating and orienting. Besides working with new graduates, preceptors are assigned to nurses who change positions, whether they move within the organization when switching specialties or they enter a new facility. A preceptor is more than a volunteer who trains someone. It is a specialty practice that requires preparation, skill, and talent to yield the best outcomes. The Ambulatory Care RN Preceptor Program is designed for registered nurses to become confident and effective preceptors. While the program was intended to complement the Ambulatory Care RN Residency program, the skills gained through this program can be applied to any clinical setting. This self-paced educational program is presented in a blended learning format that includes both reading and video modules. The online format allows for flexibility with regard to individual schedules, workload, and personal commitments.
Please note: Program participation is designed to complement instructor-led training in your region.
