A preceptor is an experienced clinician who is expected to facilitate a student's learning experience. Preceptorship is the relationship between a staff nurse and student, focusing on the development of clinical skills and knowledge. Initially introduced by Florence Nightingale in the 1800s, the concept was quickly adopted by nurse anesthetists and is a staple of the anesthesia practice today. As it stands, many Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists (CRNA) preceptors do not receive formal training in their role, which may lead to a decrease in teaching ability and confidence to face broad teaching-learning issues. A lack of preparation hinders preceptor outcomes and can have detrimental effects on the student's learning experience. This doctoral project aims to develop an evidence-based preceptor training program utilizing the Rosswurm and Larrabee model for EBP change to analyze its impact on confidence, preparedness, and knowledge. The implementation of this project will take place at a level-1 urban trauma surgical center in the Midwest. Preceptor confidence, preparedness, and teaching knowledge will be measured utilizing a pre and post-training survey based on the Likert scale to assess for statistical significance before and after the training program.
