Nurse Practitioner Preceptor Program

Preceptor Logo

The Partners in Education Program creates a close working relationship between community nurse practitioner preceptors and SUNY Upstate Medical University College of Nursing.

The purpose of the program is to:

  • Improve and foster a positive relationship with community preceptors;
  • Make available preceptor educational programs and resources, and;
  • Provide 'rewards' as a thank you for a valued service to our College and the community at large.

Preceptors Share Knowledge and Expertise

The Partners in Education program provides a mechanism to cooperatively prepare our students to succeed in a challenging and ever-changing health care environment.

Who can be a Partner in Education?

The College of Nursing seeks to partner with experienced nurse practitioners that have a desire to contribute to the education of future community and regional nurse practitioners. If you are interested in becoming a Partner in Education, please contact Dr. Bambi Carkey at carkeyb@upstate.edu.

Being a preceptor partner has many satisfying rewards. Building relationships and changing lives are two very important ones.
