Abstract

A preceptor project at the Royal Brisbane and Women's Hospital in Queensland, Australia, explored existing levels of preceptorship support during the transition processes of newly employed or transferred nurses and midwives. Initiatives adopted have enhanced the implementation and maintenance of preceptorship principles and communication processes and defined accountability and responsibilities. Outcomes have contributed to enhanced role clarity, improved communication, increased support for teaching and learning, and infrastructure processes to facilitate the preceptor-preceptee relationship and increased retention.
