They were contacted through an e-mail link which included a letter of information, informed consent and survey. Results: The findings of the survey were analyzed using SPSS and the open text box questions were themed according to the preceptor competencies: clinical expertise, leadership and conflict management skills, positive attitude, motivation, role modeling, communication, knowledge of assessing student learning, assisting students to utilized evidence based practice, critical thinking and decision making skills. Conclusion: The outcomes serve as a basis for fostering strategies to improve the Preceptorship Program in the areas of: clinical reasoning, reflective practice, managing conflict and teaching methods and evaluation.
