Preceptor Information

Thank you for your interest in becoming a preceptor to students of the Eleanor Mann School of Nursing. Preceptorship is closely supervised training but also a form of mentorship, overseen by the student's school. The school seeks such facilitators for its Licensed Practical Nurse to Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree program, for the Master of Science in Nursing-Nursing Educator program and for both concentrations in its Doctor of Nursing Practice program.

As a preceptor for our students, you are a valuable partner in their educational experience. It is our goal to support your role, and to provide you with helpful resources for building a positive clinical experience. Click on the link for the program in which you are interested in precepting for an overview of the precepting experience in that program.

Ideally, preceptors are prepared both by education and experience. Preceptors should be experientially prepared to guide students in the respective area of clinical course focus. Clinical experiences, sites and preceptors will be negotiated among the student, preceptor and EMSON officials. EMSON faculty can serve as preceptors for graduate students but not in the same section in which the faculty member is the instructor of record.
