The Preceptor Role

The preceptor is integral in the clinical learning experience of our graduate students. The University of Cincinnati values the time, commitment, and knowledge of our preceptors. We have provided additional information to help guide you through your journey in serving as a preceptor for a UC College of Nursing student.

Become familiar with the qualifications and required documentation to become a preceptor and access resources to best assist you in getting started as a preceptor. In addition, your success as a preceptor is important to us. We want to provide a foundation for you to engage in purposeful interactions with our students in the clinical environment and have provided information to guide you in your role as a preceptor and in your interactions with students.
