Orientation and Continuing Education

ISU Preceptor Orientation

To help you prepare for your precepting experience, we provide you with a free online ISU preceptor orientation. This orientation provides an overview of our program including various supervised experiential learning courses,  suggested assignments, and precepting tips. You are welcome to share this training opportunity with other preceptors at your facility,  which includes a few short videos to watch. Additionally, ACEND requires that preceptors receive training “on strategies to recognize and monitor biases in self and others and reduce instances of microaggressions and discrimination” (standard 5.3c). Consequently, we have provided you with resources below on Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, and Access. 

Preceptor training videos:

  • Becoming a successful preceptor
  • Community Nutrition Supervised Experiential Learning
  • Competency Based Education and ACEND Competencies
