Nursing Students requesting Preceptorship

The Nursing Administration department here at Children’s Health is made up of a very diverse group of nurses with years of senior leadership and training experience. Our volunteer preceptors each accept 2 students per year (1 at a time) and look forward to meeting you and assisting you in your quest to expand your nursing experience and knowledge base. We hope that you have a wonderful and educational experience while you are here.

While you are here as a student, we want you to have an enjoyable and educational experience. You will need to download a copy of the Precepted Student Handbook; you will want to read it carefully and completely.
