Frontier Nursing University’s (FNU) first Preceptor Celebration Week will be held August 14-18, 2023. This event honors the important role that preceptors play in advanced practice nursing education.
Preceptors are experienced licensed clinicians who supervise nursing students during their clinical rotations. Their role is to help students translate what they have learned into real-world clinical practice. This celebration will showcase FNU preceptors’ work and acknowledge their key role in shaping future advanced practice nurses via posts and stories shared on FNU’s blog and social media networks, including Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter (X).
“Preceptors play an essential role in the education and preparation of our students,” said FNU President Dr. Susan Stone, DNSc, CNM, FACNM, FAAN. “We are so grateful to the thousands of preceptors across the country who give their time and expertise to train the next generation of advanced practice nurses.”
Preceptor Celebration Week also marks the beginning of FNU’s preceptor contest, with the three winning preceptors each receiving $500 gift vouchers. This contest will run throughout the next ten months, with nominations for outstanding preceptors accepted through June 1, 2024. The nominee must be an FNU-credentialed preceptor. Winners will be announced via email by July 1, 2024. To nominate a preceptor and for a complete list of contest rules, please visit frontier.edu/preceptorweek.
