Abstract:
The professional practice of nurse preceptors encompasses the utilization of practice expertise and situated knowing in a manner that engages students in caring for patients safely in complex environments. Preceptors navigate through complex situations with the student to bring out what needs to be learned in an intentional, interactive and thoughtful manner. In assessing and cultivating student understanding, preceptors discover a scope of practice that is beyond clinical expertise while cognizant of the expectations of academic institutions and regulating bodies. This triangulated research explicating the teaching skills inherent to the everyday practice of preceptors was involved a descriptive survey sent to approximately 800 preceptors in Southern Alberta, followed by a qualitative phase entailing 16 focus groups and 5 individual interviews. The descriptive-interpretive analysis revealed understandings of discovering, learning and engaging as key elements to the art of preceptoring. This presentation moves beyond the description of the findings of this triangulated research towards an innovative strategy welcoming preceptors to dialogue via the on-line community within the Centralized Preceptor Education Project website, about the rewards, challenges and issues surrounding this experience. Ultimately wisdom is revealed.
