What is a MODEL preceptor?
Welcome to Mentors Offering Direction Exemplifying Leadership (M.O.D.E.L) Preceptor Course! The go-to guide for NP students or what I like to call next generation nurse practitioners (NEXGENNPs). Did you know that all preceptorships are not created equal? So why are they advertised that way?
