Has anyone used typhon to find NP clinicals? Was it still challenging to find preceptors using this website? Thanks everyone!

Typhon’s purpose really isn’t for finding preceptors. That’s more of a side effect. The previous students input their preceptors and once you have access you can see a list of previously used preceptors. You still have to contact them, determine if they are still willing & have an opening, convince them to precept you, and arrange everything.

Typhon is also used for you and your preceptors to input and verify your hours.

My school used typhon for tracking of clinical hours and for tracking preceptor feedback/evaluations. It was NOT for finding preceptors. Sure you could see other preceptors in the list who'd at one point in time been credentialed with the university, but given you need a school code to log in - and we didn't receive that code until we started clinicals it wouldn't be useful to find a preceptor.

For me it was mostly useful to get used to common ICD-10 codes and CPT codes for billing... also nice to see a breakdown of patients by age/diagnosis/complexity at the end of the term.

This is NOT the purpose of typhon. It's meant to log cases and hours LOL....

I used it to get a few names. but never paid out for me.  Now that I am a NP, timing is everything when students reach out.    My general rule of thumb is to say no to anyone who is trying to find a place 1 -3 months prior to the start date. Start early .
