Preceptor Award - Call for Nominations 2023


We are delighted to announce the call for the 2023 Preceptor of the Year Award. 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 the School of Nursing & Midwifery places on the importance of clinical practice education and on promoting excellence within preceptorship.

All preceptors within clinical practice are eligible for nomination. Candidates must 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 the TCD School of Nursing & Midwifery: St James’s Hospital, Tallaght University 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 complete an application form for the award.

A panel compromising of members of the Joint Working Group (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.

The deadline for nominations is close of business on Friday 19th May 2023
