This quality improvement project focused on addressing perceived gaps in preceptor preparation. In addition to realigning course goals with organizational priorities, the authors explored the effectiveness of incorporating simulation-based education into an initial preceptor workshop through measures of participant satisfaction, knowledge gain, and follow-up surveys of preceptor behaviors. The results obtained from this project support the use of simulation-based education in preceptor preparation.
