Need a preceptor!

  1. Hi,

    I'm in a very unfortunate position, as my school has been having difficulty finding clinical placements for its master's students. This is total BS for sure, and I am working to get to the bottom of this. I was able to secure a great placement for fall quarter, but it looks like my school has only placed half the students for our women's health clinical during winter quarter.

    This is such a long shot, but I figure it wouldn't hurt to ask if anyone in the Seattle area would like to mentor a terrific and very smart nurse practitioner student for 90 hours during January, Feb, and early March.

    Did anyone else have this kind of problem in their programs? Is it just my school (Seattle University) that is letting us down?

    Thanks for listening!

    I think many online programs require students to find a clinical preceptor in their own area.

    I should have been more specific. Mine isn't an online program. Some students have to make up time this next quarter because their placements fell through.

    I didn't think yours was, I was just meaning that it isn't unusual for students to have to find their own preceptor. May just be a matter of contacting NPs at the facility and asking them personally.
