Competence and clinical judgment among new graduate nurses are at a historical low of 9% based on observational performance assessments (Kavanagh & Sharpnack, 2021). This points to a need for collaboration between academia and practice to improve the practice readiness of senior nursing students prior to their transition to practice. The nurse preceptor is well-recognized as a key to success for both senior nursing students and new graduate nurses. Support and training for nurse preceptors are essential aspects of improving practice readiness in novice nurses. A recent review of standard preceptor training and nurse preceptor perception of practice readiness indicates training content must relate to the current needs of students and new graduate nurses. The aim of this project was to improve the self-efficacy and resilience of nurse preceptors who are training senior nursing students, as well as improve the nurse preceptors’ satisfaction with the preceptor training experience. Nurses in six healthcare organizations received enhanced preceptor training using self-paced online modules, synchronous Zoom training using scenarios for problem-based learning, and 12 weekly teaching tips. Analysis of surveys conducted at baseline, following training, and at the completion of time spent with a student indicates a significant increase in self-efficacy and sustained resilience. Nurses reported a significant increase in satisfaction with the enhanced preceptor training.
