Preceptorship is an opportunity to work on areas of required growth and consolidation with the guidance of a clinical mentor/supervisor. During this final experience, learners will focus on gaining proficiency in practice, developing leadership skills and aim toward independence in practice. Learners will also function as an active member of an interdisciplinary health team, integrate their nursing skills, and their sense of professional responsibility and identity. Learners work with a preceptor in a selected area of practice, learning professional responsibility and developing their own individual style of practice. At the completion of the course, the learner will meet the competencies expected of entry to practice Registered Nurses (CNO 2009a).
