My current facility does not train their preceptors. I brought it up to my director and now multiple directors and the CNO are excited about developing a preceptor program. I am going to work with the education director, but I'm really looking forward to helping my facility develop this.

My next question,
Where do I start, lol

What are some of the things every preceptor should know/be aware of?

I have a lot of research to do, but any insight would be greatly appreciated.

There is lots of literature on the topic of preceptor preparation.   So do a good lit search and you'll find a lot.   Also, check out ANPD (the Association of Nurses in Professional Development).   They have a lot of resources on that topic.

I would start at the the ANPD website as you will not only need topics to include in a preceptor prep course ... but material on how to teach, how to plan an educational experience, etc.   Do you have any experience in staff development?    Will you have access to anyone who does have experience with staff development?
