Preceptors come together for Workshop and Recognition Day

Lisa Norsen and Mel Callan

Lisa Norsen, director of the master’s programs at the School,
stands with alum and preceptor Mel Callan, who
received the 2010 Distinguished Alumna Preceptor.

The School welcomed more than 90 community preceptors to Helen Wood Hall April 28 to recognize them for their contributions and provide free educational sessions.

Preceptors are critical to nursing education, usually spending eight to 16 hours a week over the course of a 14-week semester working one on one with students. Many have served as preceptors continuous semesters year after year.

Two awards were given during the event. Mary Beth McCann was named Outstanding Preceptor of the Year, and Mel Callan was recognized as this year’s Distinguished Alumna Preceptor.
