Student Responsibilities

CNPP students have access to a CNPP Practice Education Portal which provides them with information on how to arrange their practice education experiences. The site also provides information on:

  • how practice education experiences are evaluated,
  • patient safety, and
  • the process used if practice education concerns are identified.

Student Responsibilities

Students will:

  • Contact preceptor and organize practice education schedule. Must have minimum of 3 consecutive 8-hour days or, if working extended shifts, minimum of 20 consecutive hours.
  • Complete agency specific training, (i.e. EMR, E-health, confidentiality)
  • Submit practice education hours, using the identified process, for Clinical Faculty approval.
  • Inform preceptor and Clinical Faculty of changes in schedule due to illness or extenuating circumstances.
  • Submit Individual Development Plan for review and approval by Clinical Faculty.
  • Review Individual Development Plan with preceptor.
  • Provide the preceptor all required feedback forms.
  • Ensure preceptor is reviewing and co-signing charting, diagnostic investigations, and prescriptions.
  • Organize student-preceptor-Clinical Faculty evaluations and submit the course specific feedback forms as directed. (Does not apply to MNUR 802). The documents must be submitted at least 48 hours prior to the scheduled evaluations.
  • Maintain the Practice Education Patient Contact Log (daily) and condition and procedure database (throughout the program). The Practice Education Patient Contact Log will be reviewed by the Clinical Faculty.
  • Identify to preceptor ethical or moral concerns related to specific patient presentations (i.e., MAiD).
