Whether you are a nurse practitioner student or an officially certified nurse practitioner, we all know how had it can be to find a quality clinical site. NP preceptors are few and far between. Without this prized clinical experience, we cannot graduate and move on with our careers.
Last week, NP student Michelle addressed the nurse practitioner community by posting a comment on MidlevelU asking readers to assist in her search for a clinical preceptor. I wanted to dedicate an official blog post to helping her with her dilemma.
Michelle says “I am a student enrolled in Walden University’s Family Nurse Practitioner program. This summer I begin my practicums and since I work in home health, am finding it difficult to find a place to complete practicum training. I live in Fort Mill, SC area, close to Charlotte, North Carolina. If anyone is interested in being a preceptor or can offer suggestions to set up practicums, I would welcome information.”
Let’s help Michelle find a clinical placement! If you are a Family Nurse Practitioner, Physician or Physician Assistant practicing in the Fort Mill, SC area or Charlotte, North Carolina or have contacts who would be wiling to help Michelle with her clinical placement, please comment below.
