Preceptors are our partners in education by providing supervised clinical experiences that allow students to apply knowledge gained in the classroom to clinical practice. Preceptors provide an essential bridge linking students’ previously learned behaviors to current professional nursing values. Students benefit from the individualized instruction that preceptors provide.
Preceptors also benefit from their experiences with UH nursing students. Preceptors discover that this role brings status, increased job satisfaction, advancement of practice, and recognition by faculty and other expert practitioners. Other benefits include invitations to College of Nursing functions and scholarship opportunities.
