Precepting in Nursing: Developing an Effective Workforce is an excellent resource for Health Care Agencies and Schools of Nursing seeking to prepare staff nurses to precept student nurses, new graduates, and experienced nurses. Each chapter introduces concepts essential to preceptor development, suggests strategies for concept application, and presents questions and situations to guide learning. The workbook begins with basics for getting started, guides the preceptor through legal and regulatory controls, and assists the preceptor in developing plans for success. The book then moves to key strategies for understanding and working with beginner behaviors, developing time-management skills, facilitating adult learning and learning styles, maintaining preceptee motivation, working with various preceptee diversities, and assessing and evaluating preceptee progress. The handbook concludes by guiding the preceptor through potential challenges that may be encountered and provides an overview of the key strategies and skills needed to become a successful and effective preceptor.
