Rockhurst University’s online nursing programs are delivered by the reputable Saint Luke’s™ College of Nursing and Health Sciences. We need clinical preceptors to help us deliver on our commitment to preparing nurse professionals for clinical excellence through health care innovation, transformative learning, and quality outcomes.

Rockhurst is in search of Advanced Practice Registered Nurses (APRNs), Registered Nurses (RNs), Doctors of Osteopathic Medicine (DOs), Doctors of Medicine (MDs), Nurse Practitioners (NPs), and Physician Assistants (PAs) whose discipline may include family practice, women's health, pediatrics, adult-gerontology, psychiatric-mental health, med-surg, among other medical practices. The requirements to become a preceptor vary by program.

Rockhurst University has been part of the Jesuit tradition since 1910. Jesuit education is known for academic excellence and an emphasis on the education of the whole person. These values, along with interdisciplinary studies, a global perspective, and justice, remain the hallmarks of Jesuit education today. Our focus is on learning, leadership, and service in the Jesuit tradition while welcoming students of all faiths.

If you are passionate about caring for people and want to mentor and empower nursing professionals to reach their full potential, Rockhurst University’s preceptor opportunities can be the pathway to giving back to the profession and the mentorship you received as a student.

Why Become a Preceptor?

Precepting is your opportunity to shape a new generation of nurses and influence real change in health care. Rockhurst University students are educated at the highest level of academic excellence, so you can trust them to provide exceptional care for your patients.

The benefits of precepting include:

  • Helping nurses achieve professional growth. You can share your valuable knowledge and expertise as you guide students through real-life learning opportunities.
  • Reinforcing and strengthening your knowledge. Students learn current clinical best practices, so knowledge-sharing is often a two-way street.
  • Enjoying the satisfaction of “paying it forward.” Giving back to the profession in which you received mentorship when you were a student can be very satisfying.
  • Opportunities for professional development. Rockhurst University preceptors have unlimited access to the entire NurseTim webinar catalog.

With seven programs from which to choose, you can support students in the program of your choice.
