Abstract:
The growing demand for quality student placements in community health and the challenge of recruiting preceptors to facilitate 34 nursing students' learning, resulted in the development and implementation of a Team Preceptorship Model at Durham Region Health Department in partnership with the University of Ontario Institute of Technology. The purpose of the pilot project was to evaluate the effectiveness of the Model (Part 2) on students' and preceptors' experience at Durham Region Health Department. The Team Preceptor Model is an innovative approach, which enables a smaller number of preceptors to guide a larger number of students. Each preceptor on the team acts as a lead preceptor to two or four students within his/her individual program, supports and facilitates students' learning and evaluations. This qualitative study explored the experience of 14 Public Health Nurses and 9 Third Year BScN nursing students, using focus groups after completion of a 12 week clinical experience at Durham Region Health Department. Results indicated that the model supported preceptor and students, supported students' learning, and improved communication among the team of preceptors and students. This study has implications for researchers and educators in academic and clinical settings as well as the transition of student learners into future practitioners.
