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.  

Check out THIS POST for some other helpful hints in locating a nurse practitioner clinical placement.

  • Hello everyone, I’m definitely in need of two preceptors. One for pediatrician and the other obgyn. I live in the Martinsville/Danville area. I only have 3 weeks before my whole carrer could possibly be put on hold.

I only have 6 months till graduation and have worked so hard, so much support from family, but this one I need help in the nursing community. If you are a Dr.in this area or any fellow nursing student know of anyone willing to help please contact me right away. This will be greatly appreciated.

I am currently looking for a 90 hour (about 1 day per week) rotation in pediatric primary care for spring semester and a 135 hour (about 2 days per week) rotation in an internal medicine or family practice setting.

    I don’t have anyone in our preceptor database at this time to fill these positions but I will let you know if anyone comes up!

  • My school just notified me that they are having difficulty finding placement for my last semester at Georgetown in the FNP program, which starts Jan 2015. I live in Charlotte, NC, but I can go up to 100 miles one way to anywhere in North or South Carolina. I need to get 250 hours done in a family practice/internal med area from Jan 2015-April 2015. If anyone has any recommendations, I would greatly appreciate it.

    Thank so much
