My role involves time working with nurses in practice. Currently approximately 30% of our graduates serve as preceptors for senior students. It is so exciting to partner with students and our RN alumni to faciliate the capstone experience. I learn new ways of helping students transition to practice and receive feedback for curriculum revisions. Love of nursing is contagious!
