“Susan was engaging, helpful, funny and experienced. I appreciated her keeping the class moving but also allowing time for discussion.”

“Susan gave excellent examples from her experience to glean practical application for us. Susan also facilitated deep thought provoking conversation by creating a safe place and engaging each of us. “


You directly influence the behaviors and practices of your students, new orientees and new graduates in your role as a preceptor. You are a leader and educator. Being a preceptor sets an expectation that you are prepared to train the next generation of healthcare workers. Gain the tools and techniques you need to know about your motivations, adult learning characteristics, the barriers and biology associated with learning, how to develop critical thinking, and deliver feedback to your preceptee. Techniques which may work for one preceptee may not work for another. Learn how to adjust your coaching skills and strategies to make each preceptee successful. The Preceptor-As-Leader Certificate program is designed to provide you with the evidence-based knowledge and skills to fulfill your role as preceptor in any organization.

Who Should Attend?  All healthcare team members who serve as preceptors over students, new orientees, and new graduates in any healthcare environment.
