Benefits for Students

Preceptors offer students powerful learning opportunities that call on hearing, sight, sound, and touch, that immerse them deeply in patient care, and that build knowledge, skills, and confidence. The experience makes them better, more prepared nurses.

Benefits for Preceptors

  • The opportunity for adjunct faculty appointments and clinical instructor positions
  • Scholarly collaboration with School of Nursing faculty
  • Welsh Library privileges

There is also the pride of knowing that your contributions have advanced the nursing profession.

Benefits for Health Care

Clinical preceptors and faculty are integral to the success of future nurses, and so a shortage of them can leave medical institutions scrambling. Student-preceptor relationships build nurses who are better prepared to step directly into key caregiver roles.
