Abstract

Educational preparation for nurse preceptors helps reduce anxiety and stress in precepting. A quality improvement project was initiated in a large U.S. West Coast federal healthcare system to evaluate an existing training program for preceptors. A new 2-day preceptor workshop was subsequently created to address identified gaps. Results demonstrated statistically significant gains in preceptors' essential knowledge and skills required in precepting, and room for improvement in faculty teaching techniques and course materials.
