Preceptor Development

Nursing Preceptors

St. David's offers a Preceptor Development Workshop to our experienced nurses. Nursing preceptors are vital to the orientation, training and retention of newly hired nurses. This workshop is designed to facilitate the role transition of the bedside nurse to a preceptor role, develops expertise and enables role clarity.  Practical examples and group activities of how to apply concepts such as adult learning theories, Benner’s novice to expert concepts, and constructive feedback tools are used during the workshop.

Non-Nursing Preceptor Program

A non-nursing preceptor program is presented quarterly for experienced employees in non-nursing areas such as respiratory care, laboratory, rehabilitation services, etc., with a curriculum mirroring the nursing program, but incorporating content specific to these areas.
