Precepting is an organized, evidence-based, outcome-driven approach to ensure competent care. Preceptors are the essential link between what nurses are taught and what they do and between what nurses know and what they need to know. Preceptors live at the intersections of education and practice and of the present and the future. They are where theoretical learning meets reality. Myths, the role of a preceptor, and strategies and techniques are the focus of this important session.
