Clinical Preceptors

Georgetown University School of Nursing & Health Studies (NHS) selects preceptors who act as highly skilled mentors for students. NHS faculty thoroughly review and approve all preceptors. Nursing preceptors work alongside faculty to provide clinical training, supervision, and evaluation of students to prepare them for the complex, ever-changing health care landscape.

“Having students working with me makes me stop and think about what I do each day with each patient. That is what I believe is the benefit of working with students; they question and make us think about what we do. Students always make me learn along with them.”

— Don Pallone, CRNP-BC, Georgetown University Preceptor
