Preceptor Academy

two nurses_smallHospital staff vacancy and turnover are at record levels. Your organization doesn’t have to be a statistic. Trained preceptors can make the difference. Preceptors are vital to the success of our health care organizations and workforce retention. The Missouri Preceptor Academy is a program designed for registered nurses and allied health clinicians to gain the training necessary to guide new employees, recent graduates and students through the onboarding and competence validation process. Preceptor programs have been shown to reduce turnover and the high costs associated with hiring and retaining staff. The Missouri Preceptor Academy is offered at multiple venues, so register for the event closest to your hospital to save time and money!
