Nurse Preceptor Academy Classes

The Missouri Nurse Preceptor Academy is a training program for hospital registered nurses serving as preceptors to newly hired nurses. New nurses deserve dedicated and competent preceptors to support their orientation experience. As a preceptor, you can make the difference.

Dedicated and competent nurse preceptors are vital to the success of our health care organizations and to the retention of nurses in the nursing profession. Our mission is to take a proactive approach in educating and supporting nurse preceptors.
