There are several ways that The NPA can help you connect with a potential preceptor.
- First, use the free student preceptor finder program to search for a NPA member who volunteered to participate in offering to precept. Click here to begin your search
- If you are unable to locate a preceptor using the search program or need something very specific consider submitting a Seeking a Preceptor form. The NPA will send out one email appeal on your behalf to our full membership. The email will contain a list of student members seeking preceptors and the details submitted on the form. This service will be offered three times a year (May, July and November) Click here to access request form.
- The NPA strongly encourages our student members to network with fellow NP members at their local group meetings and events as it is a great opportunity to connect with a possible preceptor.
If you still have difficulty connecting with a preceptor then you need to address this issue with your respective nurse practitioner program.
Deadlines to submit request forms:
May 15th, July 15th, and November 15th. The email to the membership will go out within 2 weeks of deadline. Any request forms submitted after the deadlines will be included in the next deadline.
The Preceptor Finder and Request form is only available to current NPA members.
