Abstract

With decreased clinical and faculty resources, monitoring students in the clinical area for safety and progress can be difficult. The authors discuss a project that used preceptors for selected beginning students to address issues related to high student-to-faculty ratios, individualized teaching, role modeling, and increased faculty time for scholarship. Based on student evaluation of the pilot project, the authors recommend using nurse preceptors for teaching beginning nursing students.
