experienced nurses who have made a commitment to facilitate the on-boarding of
new employees. Each Preceptor provides a link for the student, orientee, and
experienced staff member to the organization, policies and procedures,
standards of care, and to the patient.
Ambulatory care nursing
encompasses all patient care settings outside of an inpatient environment. It
is challenging, highly specialized, and captures the beauty of nursing as it
helps patients learn to live with complex issues within the community.
To create the right
experience using the right educational tools, the ambulatory care nursing
Preceptor must have a clear understanding of the clinical, legal and
organizational environment in which they function to deliver the right outcome.
The Preceptor Guide
for Ambulatory Care Nursing is designed to assist in the development of a
Preceptor program in an ambulatory care setting and provides information and
tools that can be quickly accessed within the work environment as well as
insight into the role of the Preceptor. The Preceptor Guide is a
companion to the Ambulatory Care Nursing Orientation
and Competency Assessment Guide.
