Successful Third Launch - Maine Nursing Preceptor Education Program
On May 11 and May 23, Lunder-Dineen staff and program faculty were joined by over 170 nurses from different care settings from across the state of Maine for the 2017 Maine Nursing Preceptor Education Program workshop. To compliment the online education component of the program, full-day workshops were held on the University of Maine, Orono and the University of New England campuses, respectively. Over 35 organizations sent nurses to participate in the spring 2017 program with a total of 54 organizations having participated since the program launch in 2015.
We are grateful for the support this program has received from the community, including a recent endorsement of the 2017 program by both the Maine Nursing Action Coalition (MeNAC) and the Organization of Maine Nurse Executives (OMNE) Nursing Leaders of Maine. The support of these two esteemed organizations spotlights the importance and value of a standardized, evidence-based, blended-learning program to advance the development of nurse preceptors across the state and continuum of care.
Congratulations, graduates of the spring 2017 Maine Nursing Preceptor Education Program!
