Good afternoon, everyone! 

We have a student who is collecting data specifically on barriers to precepting graduate nursing students from nurse practitioner perspectives. Please help contribute to this important information by participating in the following survey:


          It opened today and will remain available until March 1st. Just 20 short questions and you're done! Thank you for your time!

Not a very good survey. Not sure what useful information could be obtained from that survey. It is not work responsibilities that deter fellow nurse practitioners from precepting students. Personally, I believe is the inadequate and substandard nurse practitioner schools the students are attending and the decrease in work experience prior to attending nurse practitioner school that keeps many preceptors away.

I would like to clarify the purpose of this survey. Although, there are many variables (external/internal/personal) that have a potential impact on a NP's decision to precept a graduate student, I'm not able to address them all due to time constrain. I've conducted extensive research with hope to identify the barriers of interest and their impact on the NPs' commitment to the preceptor role. Unfortunately, the Galileo search results returned under 3,000 articles with only one that was specific to the above topics and related to graduate clinical nurse preceptors. The existing gap in the literature related to the topic has prompted the need to expand the search criteria to other medical professions, publication dates, and search sources. Additionally, the preceptors' perceptions of the role benefits were added to the data pool to explore if their absence would be considered a barrier. As a result, 20 topic related articles were selected, 9 of which were eliminated based on the lack of quantitative data to support the specific variables of interest or the degree of their impact on a preceptor's decision to teach a graduate student.
Please feel free to contact me any time for further questions, feedback, or concerns.
Thank you everyone for your valuable time, help, and effort.
