Abstract:

Preceptors take on the responsibility of educating and training new nurses in innovative evidence based practice as they pass on their knowledge and facilitate the growth of critical discernment and solid clinical skillsets. They are necessary for the success of any facility if they desire to retain their nurses and maintain job satisfaction among their staff nurses. It is critical in today’s healthcare setting to promote a workplace culture of nurture, support, and professional growth for new nurse graduates. Through the use of focused preceptor education courses, they can have the advantage with the much needed instruction to promote and provide an exceptional and quality driven orientation process. The drive of this improvement mission existed to restructure the preceptor training course to not only increase participation and satisfaction in job role, but also measure whether having such a program supported a successful orientation process and therefore retained the organization’s nurses.
