Specializes in Student.

Hi All!-

Thank you for taking the time to read about my inquiry! I'm currently on the look out for anyone who would be willing to precept me in the coming months (early July)! I would love for this to be remote, and living in California. I attend GCU for some background, and I have been unlucky with finding a preceptor up to this point. If you are interested in filling this role, please reach out ASAP! Thank you again!

For reference, this is what is required from the university to be accepted as a preceptor:
