At NP Clinical Match we understand the importance of the clinical preceptorship in the nurse practitioner education. We also know how difficult it can be both for the student to find a quality preceptor, and for busy working preceptors to make time to mentor students. Our goal is to make the process easier for students and even more rewarding for preceptors. In addition, we strive to find a student-preceptor match that meets the unique needs of both parties.
