Thank you for your interest in serving as a clinical preceptor for a University of Cincinnati College of Nursing graduate student.

As a nationally recognized institution for our academic standards, diversity and inclusion efforts, technology application and research activity, we are proud to see the reputation of our advanced-practice programs reflected in the quality of our graduate students.  

Our growing enrollment requires that we increasingly recruit qualified preceptors to deliver hands-on education through evidence-based practice throughout the country. Clinical preceptors are our partners in the academic process, playing a key role in preparing future advanced-practice nurse leaders. This is a rewarding opportunity to share your expertise with the next generation of practitioners and help shape the future of nursing.

I love taking University of Cincinnati NP students because they are very well prepared and the clinical documentation platform (eMedley) used is very user friendly
