Preceptor Program for Nurses

Spring Harbor Hospital offers preceptor opportunities for newly hired psychiatric nurses. Our preceptor program is designed to:

  • Enhance the delivery of care to all patients
  • Assist the newly hired nurse to successfully develop into a competent psychiatric nurse
  • Promote the recruitment and retention of highly skilled nurses

 

Each nurse preceptor is an experienced registered nurse with a minimum of 2 years in the field of psychiatry/mental health and has been with the organization for at least one year. Preceptors receive training and ongoing supervision to provide them with skills and resources to assist the newly hired nurse.

Preceptors assess the learning needs of newly hired nurses and develop plans to meet these needs, all the while providing ongoing feedback and support. Preceptors are available both during orientation and throughout the transition of each new nurse to their role as an independently functioning psychiatric nurse professional.
