URMC / Sovie Center for Advanced Practice Providers / Preceptorships / Roles & Responsibilities Roles & Responsibilities Logistics Orient the student to the work environment. Honor the student role by not utilizing the student to replace clinical or administrative staff during rotations. Outline your expectations of the student during the rotation (daily schedule, dress, responsibilities, etc.). Facilitate opportunities for the students to be supervised by designated licensed and credentialed providers that are a part of your practice or specialty group in your absence. Notify the School of Nursing or PA program of any questions or concerns regarding the student. Support Student Learning Preceptors can enhance an APP student's learning experience by incorporating communication techniques that demonstrate honesty, trustworthiness, and approachability. All preceptors need to foster a culture of safety and provide feedback that the APP student can respond to in a constructive way. Precepting students at different levels can be challenging and rewarding and always requires a willingness to both teach and model expert practitioner skills.
