Nurse Preceptor Modules
“Preceptors live at the intersections of education and practice and of the present and the future. They practice at the point where theoretical learning meets reality and where the gap between current and needed knowledge and expertise gets filled. Preceptors are the essential link between what nurses are taught and what they do, and between what nurses know and what they need to know. Having competent preceptors is critical to educating nursing students, transitioning new graduate nurses to the professional nursing role, and transitioning experienced nurses to new roles and specialties” (Ulrich, 2012, p. xxv). The purpose of the MT Center for Health through Nursing (MT CAHN), Academic Progression in Nursing (APIN) Preceptor Modules is to prepare preceptors to effectively support the development of students and new nurses in their academic progression within the profession.

Rural Nurse Residency
The role of the rural nurse is complex; caring for patients across the age continuum with varying health conditions and often fulfilling the role of multiple healthcare professionals all while making split second decisions. The majority of academic preparation for nurses takes place in an urban setting. The new graduate does not get a glimmer of practice in a rural setting. With the literature demonstrating nurse graduates are not fully prepared for the role of a professional nurse, how can we expect new graduates to take on the challenge of a rural setting? The Rural Nurse Residency Program utilizes the strength of a network of Critical Access Hospitals (CAHs) to supply the human resources for the program. Having a cohort through the Rural Nurse Residency Program, gives the nurse graduate a decreased sense of isolation. Rural facility recruitment may not require the hiring of a nurse graduate yearly, through participation in a Rural Nurse Residency, a cohort of nurse graduates have the benefit of participating in a larger group while being the only nurse graduate hired by their facility.
