Description: The MUSC College of Nursing has developed a preceptor orientation and education program specifically for Preceptors in South Carolina. Development of the modules was partially funded through the HRSA Advanced Nurse Education Workforce grant T94HP30872. The goal of the HRSA ANEW grant is to increase access to primary care for rural and underserved populations and increase academic partnerships. As a preceptor, you are integral to student learning. The modules include the following topics: Preceptor Roles & Responsibilities; Adult Learning, Evidence-Based Practice, Time Management, Feedback, and Interprofessional Practice. You can obtain a certificate of completion once you complete the modules. Preceptors are an essential link between the educational program, clinical practice and recruitment to rural and underserved settings. These modules are time effective and cover topics we hope will support and reinforce the important role you are filling as a preceptor. There are tips for strategic conversations, providing feedback, timely mentoring-all topics which are key components to the preceptor and student relationship. You should be able to complete a module in less than 15 minutes-we hope you find these helpful as you navigate this critical role! Your feedback is critical to us. If you have any feedback regarding the modules, please email Gigi Smith, PhD, PNP, FAES, with any questions at: smithgi@musc.edu .
