What is a Preceptor?

Why Should I Precept?

Precepting a paramedic student will allow you to help shape and encourage the growth of a fellow paramedic as s/he enters the paramedic working environment with all its excitement and challenges. You will have the privilege of helping a newcomer integrate successfully into this position by being available to answer questions related to skills and the working environment, encouraging the student through the learning process, and challenging the student to take the next step. Precepting is also an opportunity for you to develop skill as a facilitator and leader within your profession. Your professionalism and mentoring relationship will make a difference in the life of a student.
