Great feedback from our pilot program...

What do you like best about the program?

The guidance that I have not received anywhere else in how to be an effective preceptor. That I can go at my own pace."

The different modules and formats of learning - videos, articles, self-assessments. It helped me to gain information in different ways and relate better."

Making me be more aware of how the student learns so I can adapt how I teach them."

Helped me to find areas to focus on with new nurse learners, that everyone learns differently, ways to better engage with the learners so they get the best experience possible.”
