Teaching Tips 

Use of the 1-Minute Preceptor Model as a Tool in Working With Nurses

Karren Kowalski, PhD, RN, NEA-BC, ANEF, FAAN

Abstract

New graduates, newly hired nurses, and nurses transitioning to new specialties need thoughtful and thorough oversight during this process both to ensure acquisition of the required skill set and to become an integral part of the new area. Well-prepared preceptors who facilitate this education can decrease turnover and help to build a healthy work environment.
