Becoming a Preceptor
As a preceptor, you are a role model, mentor and teacher for the next generation of advanced practice nurses and clinical nurse leaders. Students gain valuable, real-world experience through your mentorship and guidance. Preceptors say that interactions with our graduate nursing students often bring new or renewed perspectives about the importance of providing patient-centered, evidenced-based care. Students appreciate the partnerships created with preceptors; the clinical opportunities that you can offer to learn and provide quality patient care are invaluable.
We have opportunities for preceptorships in the following practice areas:
- Adult Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioner
- Adult Gerontology Clinical Nurse Specialist

- Clinical Nurse Leader
- Family Nurse Practitioner

- Preceptors must have at least one year of experience in their population-focused field.
- Preceptors must have the capacity to mentor students for 2-3 days per week, with some flexibility in scheduling.
