A successful preceptor program hinges on utilizing and implementing best practices in program development and organizational change theory. Relationship-Based Precepting is a comprehensive program, based on the science of caring, which expands the preceptor role to embrace and execute critical elements of leadership at the point of care.
The Relationship-Based Precepting Model integrates four core elements—supervision, socialization, professional practice, and resiliency—that must be addressed in the day-to-day application of precepting.
This program, designed and tested by consultant Traci Hanlon, MN, RN, ensures that your precepting program shows a high return on investment.
