As per the National Framework for Nursing Preceptorship Programmes (2010) robust preceptorship leads to improved recruitment and retention of nursing staff, which in turn leads to improved patient outcomes.
Preceptorship is a supportive period which is not necessarily an extension of formal training but a time during which knowledge, skills, experiences and appropriate attitudes acquired during training are applied to practice. This period also covers socialisation to the new area and attention to wellbeing of all new staff members.
