FNP Preceptor Needed in Houston, TX
- 0Nov 16, '11 by TrekRN_FNPstudentHello to all!!
I too share the same frustration as many of the other student regarding finding a preceptor!! I am family nurse practitioner student moving to the Houston area at Christmas time. I need some new preceptors for Spring!! I have seen some of the other post about larger cities and having to compete with other NP students and a tons of medical students... I have a feeling this is the case in Houston!! I have called over 30 potential preceptors...no luck yet as they either had a student, do not allow students in the practice, no longer precept, or just wont return my call.
I am in need of a OB/GYN physician or a Certified Nurse Midwife in Houston and an internal medicine or family practice preceptor as well!! Any help would be great!

Also, try the OB departments at LBJ and Ben Taub. I know for a fact that there is an ANP at LBJ named Theresa that does L&D triage, and they have a GYN clinic with an NP, that does pap smears and cancer screenings in conjunction with MDACC. I always found the public health system to be supportive in helping me to get my clinical hours. I did 2 rotations at LBJ, and loved it. I still work there. Give them a try!
