Specialties Advanced


Hi everyone.  I am a student at Maryville University's FNP program.  Our program does not help us find preceptors.  I have used matchNP for helping me find a preceptor and it was stress free, easy and I had a great experience (highly recommend).  I was wondering if there were any other ways to find a preceptor for my last rotation? I have used social media and LinkedIn aside from calling offices.

Use facebook as a tool! Join the facebook groups labeled "NP preceptors or your local states NP groups ie: NY NP's" and ask for anyone looking to help out. That's how I found all of my preceptors and did not pay any fees. You will be surprised!

Is anyone else upset that students all have to find their own preceptors these days?  What are they even paying the school for?  They find a preceptor, the preceptor educates the student, and the school... collects the tuition.

I am an FNP student at university of central missouri and am not having any luck finding a preceptor for fall2023. It is my last semester and need an NP or MD for 110 hour starting in  October 2023 in primary/ family/ or internal med. Any leads or guidance would be great. Thank you
