|Launch of the Statewide Maine Nursing Preceptor Education Program
On September 16, Lunder-Dineen’s Maine Nursing Preceptor Education Program officially launches. The overarching goal of the program is to advance and support the recruitment, integration, satisfaction and retention of nurses across the continuum of care in Maine.
The program is ideal for experienced RNs across health care settings interested in becoming a preceptor, who work directly with patients and families in a clinical nursing role. It provides them with the knowledge, skills, and abilities to guide and support newly graduated nurses, nurses transitioning to new practice settings, and nursing students completing senior year clinical placements. It also advances preceptors’ knowledge about Maine Nursing Core Competencies, enhances the professional development and lifelong learning of staff, and supports the development of emerging nurse leaders.
The program is designed using a blended learning format with easy-to-use online modules and a one day workshop. Enrollment opens in mid-August.
