The North Dakota APRN Preceptor Bureau was designed to provide key educational materials and resources and connections to help increase the availability of APRN preceptors for North Dakota’s educational programs. This program was developed by the ND Center for Nursing Leadership Team Preceptor Program workgroup which plans to develop an RN Preceptor Program during 2015-2016.

All APRNS currently working in North Dakota (you do not need to have experience as a preceptor) and APRNs that are currently preceptors for ND Nursing Education programs are eligible to join the preceptor bureau. To get started complete the application form to join:

Your name, email address, location, specialty practice, place of employment and degree will be shared on this page. This page will also include links to additional resources.
