Mastering Precepting: A Nurse’s Handbook for Success (2nd ed.)

Nurse preceptors have the power and opportunity to inspire nurses to achieve greatness. Effective precepting programs depend on two critical groups: nurses who organize and manage the programs and nurses who support, teach, and coach. Beth Ulrich-nationally recognized for her research in work environments and transitional experiences of new graduate nurses-provides the knowledge, tools, skills, and wisdom both groups need for success.

Written for staff nurses, their managers, and educators, this second edition of Mastering Precepting: A Nurse’s Handbook for Success teaches preceptors both the science and art of precepting and empowers them to seek the support they need to be effective. For managers, it emphasizes the importance of providing nurse preceptors with positive and supportive experiences. For educators, it provides the information and knowledge required to develop and improve preceptor programs. This fully revised new edition covers:


  • NEW: Strategies and techniques for developing preceptors

  • NEW: Information on developing, implementing, and evaluating preceptor programs

  • NEW: Precepting advanced practice registered nurse students and new graduates

  • Roles, planning, goals, and motivation

  • Specific learner populations

  • Self-care and burnout precautions
