Preceptors At USF College of Nursing

Graduate nursing education at the USF College of Nursing would not be complete without the contributions from our team of preceptors. Our preceptors are typically administrators, nurse practitioners, physicians, PAs, or other experts in the clinical setting who are paired with one of our exceptional graduate nursing students. The College of Nursing greatly appreciates the time and expertise preceptors share with our students, and recognizes the difference preceptors make in preparing outstanding advanced practice nurses.

Precepting students is a great way to vet and orient potential hires; it’s basically a semester-long job interview. This process reduces recruiting costs, orientation time, and turn-over for the practice.
