Preceptor Academy

The Missouri Preceptor Academy is a communitywide training program for hospital registered nurses and allied health professionals serving as preceptors to newly hired employees. These employees deserve dedicated and competent preceptors to support their orientation experience. As a preceptor, you can make the difference. Dedicated and competent preceptors are vital to the success of our health care organizations and to the retention of nurses and allied health professionals. Our mission is to take a proactive approach in educating and supporting preceptors.
