Abstract

The Integrative Clinical Preceptor Model was designed to provide a framework for undergraduate clinical education in community health nursing. The model is based on reciprocal collaboration between students, preceptors, and faculty. Implementation of the model has resulted in individualized, population-focused experiences for students based on the principles of service-learning, empowered preceptors who are able to increase their scope of service, and increased productivity for the faculty in research and scholarship. The authors describe the collaborative partnership between a school of nursing and nurses in community health settings that has resulted in excellent clinical experiences for undergraduate nursing students.
