NUR 880 - Preceptor Dev: Tching Clinical Env

Nursing is a practice discipline, as such, the preparation of nurse practitioner students requires engagement with real world learning experiences. These experiences most often occur in the clinical practice setting alongside licensed professionals who serve as clinical preceptors. High quality clinical experiences are critical to the professional development of knowledge, skills, and attitudes among nurse practitioner students. While all who serve as preceptors are experts in their field, few have formal preparation in the area of clinical teaching. This course concentrates on developing preceptor skills in clinical education, teaching strategies, communication, feedback and evaluation. Strategies to foster a positive relationship between the preceptor, student, and faculty for promotion of a meaningful experience and successful incorporation of students into a busy clinical environment is emphasized this course.
