4 Benefits of Becoming a Preceptor

As a preceptor, you help the next generation of RNs and advanced practice RNs translate classroom learning into hands on patient care.

You’re supporting your profession, watching them gain confidence in practice, and you may even learn a few things—new nurses are full of fresh ideas. But beyond the altruistic good feelings, here are 4 benefits of precepting at the Johns Hopkins School of Nursing.

#4 You’ll have access to our Preceptor portal, which includes 4 free learning modules:

  • Motivational interviewing
  • Social determinants of health
  • Trauma-informed care
  • Cultural competence

#3 Did you know? If you precept for at least 120 hours it will count toward continuing education credits as well as recertification for the American Association of Nurse Practitioners and the American Nurses Credentialing Center.

#2 More fun facts! Preceptors are eligible to become adjunct faculty after two semesters.

#1 Preceptors can earn recommendations to become practice leaders in Sigma, the honor society of nursing, as well as other organizations.
