UH Manoa Nursing welcomes Hawaii licensed APRNs, MDs, DOs, and PAs who are State of Hawaii residents that practice primary care in Hawaii to serve as clinical preceptors for primary care family and adult/gerontology NP students. This volunteer position does not receive monetary compensation.

What are the benefits of being a preceptor?

A preceptor shares best practices and clinical wisdom with the next generation of clinicians.

As a preceptor, you may:

  • be eligible for the Hawaii Preceptor Tax Credit

What is expected of preceptors?

UH Manoa Nursing expects each preceptor to complete the free online course covering the role, responsibilities, and techniques for guiding clinical learning in a supportive non-threatening manner.

The preceptor guides student learning in the clinical setting and partners with the UH Manoa faculty to ensure student learning. Preceptors provide input to the faculty member related to the student’s clinical skill development and the faculty is responsible for the evaluation of student performance. The faculty conducts 3 site visits during the rotation and is available to the preceptor and student, as needed. The preceptor participates in the mid-term and final assessment meeting with the student and faculty.

At the end of the semester, the preceptor completes a brief evaluation of their precepting experience to provide their input related to the experience of being a preceptor.
