Preceptorship programs are widely used for socialization of newly hired nurses. This study was designed as a systematic replication of the study conducted by Dibert and Goldenberg (1995). The overall purpose of this dissertation research project was to examine the relationships among preceptors' perceptions of benefits, rewards, supports and commitment to the preceptor role at a community-based medical center in the midwestern part of the United States. A sample of 674 professional registered nurses were invited to complete a four-part questionnaire. A between subjects design was used to address the research questions and test the null hypotheses. An examination of the scores on the Preceptors' Perceptions of Benefits and Rewards Scale indicated that preceptors are likely to be committed to the preceptor role when there are what they consider to be worthwhile benefits and rewards associated with the role. Participants reported that they worked as a preceptor for the opportunity to share their knowledge with new nurses and nursing students, to teach new staff nurses and nursing students, to assist new staff and nursing students to integrate into the nursing unit, and to contribute to their profession and to gain personal satisfaction from the role. The economic climate in health care necessitates that orientation programs prepare new hires and graduates to function effectively and efficiently as soon as possible. The preceptor relationship is mutually beneficial for the nurse, the preceptor, and the hospital. Such a relationship elevates the professionalism and skill of the new hire and/or graduates as well as the preceptors.
