Abstract

High preceptor turnover and mandates for cost efficiency in a rapidly changing healthcare environment require innovative approaches for developing and supporting nurse preceptors. Responding to new organizational strategic and cost containment initiatives, a quality improvement project was initiated that combined several evidence-based approaches to align traditional processes and programs. The resultant preceptor development program decreased costs and standardized processes. It also showed improved learning and preceptor satisfaction and increased educational, networking, and recognition opportunities.
