The faculty, staff, and students of the University of Washington School of Nursing thank all of our preceptors for your efforts on behalf of the education of our students. We value your interest in and commitment to our academic programs, and recognize you as individuals who demonstrate excellence in clinical practice and/or community service.
As you know, our students need high-quality, precepted clinical experiences on a quarterly basis as part of their education. Preceptors for graduate students in the Master of Nursing and Doctor of Nursing Practice programs may be advanced practice nurses, physicians, or other health care professionals with advanced degrees. For undergraduate students, preceptors may be Registered Nurses prepared with either a BSN or MN degree. All preceptors provide an invaluable piece of students' clinical education.
Please use the following resources to support your role and development as a preceptor. Whether you have previous experience with students or are just beginning to add teaching to your professional skills, we hope these resources will be of help to you.
