Thoroughly updated, this practical "how-to" guide provides a useful and easy-to-follow framework for developing and implementing preceptor programs, for learning to precept students, and for facilitating the development of expertise in both preceptors and preceptees. The contributor list includes specialists within a wide spectrum of clinical nursing settings who have expertise in preceptor program development. This text is essential to nursing faculty and nursing clinicians who want to set up preceptor programs, guide student experiences, or help orient novice practitioners to the practice setting. It explains the differences between precepting and mentoring or teaching; provides insights into preceptor programs; and explores internships, residencies, and mentoring.
