The primary goal of the precepted clinical experience is for the preceptor to engage the NP student in the guided experience of integrating and applying scientific knowledge to clinical practice.

To help guide the experience, The Young School of Nursing NP program provides:

  • Clear guidelines for the preceptor and the student
  • Student clinical requirements and performance expectations at each level
  • Professional codes (conduct, dress, communication, Regis ID card, name pin, and so on)
  • Evaluation and grading criteria
  • Expected preceptor role in evaluation of the student
  • Communication channels that include faculty support, availability, and expectations of feedback among all parties with mutual respect
