2015 Excellence in Preceptorship Award
The sixth annual Excellence in Preceptor Recognition and Appreciation luncheon was held on May 26, 2015 at the Best Western Plus, Dartmouth. This event sponsored by the Registered Nurses Professional Development Centre honours the outstanding contributions that Preceptors provide to our health care. The award recognizes outstanding staff who exhibit exceptional abilities as a preceptor to new staff members and who create a positive, encouraging and respectful learning environment. The successful recipients are role models who create planned and purposeful learning experiences, provide feedback for ongoing evaluation, support socialization of the preceptee into the new role and environment, and foster ongoing professional development of all staff.
Preceptoring is truly an art, and it takes a great deal of knowledge and skill to help someone to grow and flourish.

Lindsay Denis, Cobequid Community Health Centre
Joan Clark, Dartmouth General Hospital
Ruth Kwantes, Victoria General Site, QE II Health Sciences Centre
