A preceptor-mentor is a competent staff nurse employed by the care organization who acts as a role model and facilitates the development of clinical competence, clinical reasoning skills, and sound clinical judgement in the new graduate. The preceptor-mentor also ensures patient safety as the new graduate integrates competencies, fosters effective communication for collaboration and patient satisfaction, and promotes role socialization.
The Preceptor-Mentor Training Program includes nine independent modules with short assignments and a live discussion to develop the experienced nurses’ capacity to mentor new nurses.
This course is also part of CASN’s Nursing Residency Program.
Format: Online, through Zoom & Moodle
Participants should have, at minimum, approximately three years of experience as a staff nurse.
