“The strength of our program depends on strong preceptors,” said Dean Patricia Davidson at the Johns Hopkins School of Nursing’s annual preceptor appreciation reception. “Thank you for shaping the next generation of nurses.”
Preceptors help the next generation of nurses translate classroom learning into hands-on patient care. At the same time, preceptors develop their own teaching and mentoring skills, and may even be encouraged to pursue an advanced degree.
At last night’s gathering there were several new preceptors being honored along with their preceptors. Here’s preceptor Amy Burrell with her preceptors, she trained for her BSN with Dr. Susan Renda and for her MSN with Marianne Fingerhood.
“I love the students’ fresh ideas,” said Celia. Nina said, “I love watching them gain confidence in practice.”
Abaneh said, “I love shaping the next generation who will change the face of nursing. “Laura said, “Knowing we’re supporting our profession.”
Special thanks to Winter Ware, Mary Rosenberger, and Miki Goodwin for organizing the preceptor appreciation reception.
