Due to popular demand, ANCC is proud to re-open the ANCC Preceptor Bank! Graduate students, APRN faculty, and universities may once again benefit from the ANCC Preceptor Bank. The ANCC Preceptor Bank will serve as a repository tool to access and locate eligible APRN preceptors who can be a great match for graduate students needing knowledge, skills, and clinical expertise in a specific practice specialty/setting.
The goal of the ANCC Preceptor Bank is to fill the need by helping APRN students find the preceptors for their graduate school clinicals, while allowing APRNs to volunteer their time to earn professional development hours for their ANCC certification renewal.
Deans and Program Directors/APRN Faculty of schools/universities will have access to the new and updated ANCC Preceptor Bank. The Preceptor Bank will help graduate students eliminate the associated costs and frustrations with finding a preceptor-volunteer, essentially resulting in them being able to seek ANCC national certification.
Join the ANCC Preceptor Bank to:
- Enhance your role commitment as an APRN.
- Help teach/train future APRNs and increase their exposure to the latest practice-based research
- Enhance one’s professional reputation by helping a new advanced practice graduate nurse grow into a competent health care provider
- Earn credits for your professional development that can be applied to your ANCC certification renewal
