The College of Nursing believes that preceptors deserve to be recognized and acknowledged for their contributions in supporting and extending nurse practitioner students in their learning.

If chosen as a recipient, you may be asked to submit a digital photo. For more information, please contact Patty Powers at powersp@upstate.edu.

At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person. Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us.
