6 6 Introduction Healthcare today has placed increased demands on the profession of nursing more than ever before. Entry-level practice for new graduates requires complex clinical skills, along with the ability to critically think to ensure the transition into practice and safe patient outcomes. In order to meet the requirements of the entry level nursing graduate and the needs of healthcare facilities, Mt. San Jacinto College has developed a culminating preceptor experience for fourth semester registered nursing students. The purpose of this informational material is to provide an overview of the college s preceptorship program. Information concerning the preceptorship program, preceptor workshop, and the college-nursing program will be included. The success of any nursing preceptorship program extends beyond the confines of the college, faculty, staff and administration, but relies on the partnerships forged with healthcare facilities within the community it serves. Consequently, Mt. San Jacinto College wishes to thank all those who have, and continue to support the college nursing programs. Without community support this preceptor program would not be possible. It is the nursing department s goal to provide nursing graduates who are ready to enter the profession of nursing with basic nursing skills and safety competencies, providing our healthcare partners beginning professionals who are ready to assume employment in providing positive patient outcomes. Nurses assist patients to meet their basic needs throughout the life span to attain and maintain levels of wellness. These needs must be met in a specific hierarchal order beginning with physiological needs and progressing through self-actualization needs. These needs are met by interventions performed individually or by others, such as, nurses.

7 7 Dear Preceptor, The NURS 248 teaching team and I would like to express our appreciation for your participation in our Preceptorship rotation. You have been recommended as a role model for our final semester nursing students and we appreciate the fact that you will be sharing your talents, expertise, and patience with our students to enhance their learning. The purpose of the NURS 248 preceptorship course has been to assist the students in making the transition from the student role to the staff nurse role with minimal difficulty. The overall goals include: acquainting the student with staffing and patient assignment activities, implementing nursing process in coordinating, providing and managing care for a group of patients, providing the student opportunities to implement leadership, management, advanced clinical practice and organizational skills, as well as communicating and collaborating with other health care members and identifying educational opportunities for patients and families, minimizing probability of culture shock upon entry into professional practice; reducing role conflict.. Please share with us any comments or suggestions that you believe could enhance this leadership experience for either preceptors or students. Again, thank you for being a preceptor. We appreciated the time and effort that you spend with our students and faculty. Please do not hesitate to call your student s clinical instructor either at the college or by pager if you have any questions or concerns. Schedule Students must meet at least 1 day a week in the clinical area. Depending on your schedule (8 or 12 hour shifts), the students will complete their rotation in 4-7 weeks. The students are recommended to schedule their clinical days back to back, when possible and will communicate their schedule to you and their clinical instructor in writing. Objectives Please read the enclosed packet. Clinical objectives, critical objectives and expected outcomes have been outlined for you. The role of the preceptor, the preceptee and the role of the faculty liaison are also outlined. Please read the Clinical Objectives/Preceptorship Evaluation tool as soon as possible as this will give you some guidance about how faculty evaluate the student. Forms If you have not done so, please provide the clinical faculty with information to complete the BRN form, and sign the preceptorship contract. These forms identify you as a preceptor and clinical teaching assistant with the BRN through Mount San Jacinto College. Your faculty liaison will give you this information, which will be kept on file in the division office. Sincerely, Preceptorship Course Faculty
