Preceptor Award - Call for Nominations 2017
We are delighted to announce a call for the 2017 Preceptor of the Year Award Scheme. This award is designed to recognise and reward clinical staff who have made an outstanding contribution as preceptors to our undergraduate nursing and midwifery students and are creative in their approaches to facilitating student learning during clinical practice experience. The award also reflects the value which we in the School of Nursing and Midwifery place on the importance of clinical practice education and on promoting excellence within preceptorship.
All preceptors within clinical practice are eligible for nomination. Candidates must however be registered nurses or midwives, be a preceptor to undergraduate nursing or midwifery students, and be employed in the following hospitals/clinical sites associated with TCD School of Nursing and Midwifery (St James’s Hospital, Tallaght Hospital, Naas Hospital, HSE Mental Health Services, St. Patricks Mental Health Services, Stewarts Services, Muiriosa, The Coombe Women and Infants University Hospital and the Rotunda Hospital).
The award application process is in two parts: (i) the preceptor candidate is nominated by a current registered undergraduate nursing or midwifery student who completes the nomination application form; (ii) once the nominated preceptor agrees that they are willing to go forward they also complete an application form for the award. A panel compromising of members of the joint working groups (members include TCD and Clinical Personnel) will consider all applications and decide on the successful candidate. The successful candidate will receive their award at the annual School Awards Ceremony held in Michaelmas term.
The award is a €250 voucher.
Please return all student nomination forms by Friday 16 June 2017
