Abstract:
Clinical nurses employed in health care settings often serve as preceptors for nursing students and/or newly employed nurses during their orientation. Predictions related to the faculty shortage will impact the utilization of competent preceptors in clinical settings. While clinical nurses are experts in oncology nursing, many often have little or no formal preparation for their preceptor role. Lack of preparation may contribute to role strain, job dissatisfaction, turnover, or unsatisfactory learning experience/outcomes for both preceptor and learner. Therefore, a need exists to provide clinical nurses with strategies that can assist them to develop their knowledge and skills for a preceptor role. The purpose of this presentation is to prepare oncology nurses employed in clinical practice settings for the preceptor role. Perspectives from stakeholders, such as health care settings and schools of nursing will be addressed. Available evidence-based strategies will be included in an attempt to strengthen preceptor skills. Key features of this presentation will include: assessment of learning needs/outcomes; planning effective clinical learning activities; implementing clinical teaching with constructive feedback; handling difficult preceptor-learner situations; and documenting/evaluating clinical performance. Participants will have an opportunity to conduct a self-assessment and personal career plan for future development in the preceptor role. A variety of active teaching-learning strategies will be used during the presentation. Participants will have an opportunity to conduct a self-assessment and personal career plan for future development in the preceptor role. A variety of active teaching-learning strategies will be used during the presentation. The session will conclude with implications for oncology nursing practice, exploration of clinical-academic partnerships, and suggestions for utilization of preceptor information on a unit-based level.
