Preceptors are experienced nurses who have made a commitment to facilitate the onboarding of new employees.
Each preceptor provides a link for the student, orientee, or experienced staff member to your organization,
its policies and procedures, standards of care, and to patients.

Ambulatory care nursing encompasses all patient care settings outside of an inpatient environment.
