MetadataShow full item record
INTRODUCTIONPreceptorship is the final clinical preparation that allows pre-licensure nursing students to integrate knowledge and skills obtained during the undergraduate curriculum and apply it to practice with the oversight of a professional nurse preceptor. The preceptor facilitates the students' integration to the clinical area by assisting in the development of professional knowledge and skills with an individualized approach (Omer, Suliman & Moola, 2015). The preparation of students to provide safe and quality care is dependent upon the type and quality of clinical preceptorship (Edward, Ousey, Playle& Giandinoto, 2017; Reberio, Edward, Chapman & Evans, 2015).
