Abstract

Nurse Anesthesia Programs rely on Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists (CRNA) to precept students and evaluate student’s skills. Though CRNAs precept students, their training is not in evaluation methodology and they do not feel qualified to perform student evaluations. This DNP project identified preceptors’ opinions about precepting students, and areas of concern in communicating with students and evaluating student competency. A communication and an evaluation tool were selected and a literature review was performed. The One-Minute Preceptor and the Dreyfus Five-Stage Model of Adult Skills Acquisition were combined into a Preceptor Toolkit and presented as teaching aids to preceptors. After preceptors received the education module, a post-implementation survey was created to gauge if there were changes in preceptor’s opinions of precepting and evaluating students. The results from the follow-up survey were unchanged from the results of the initial survey. There were no differences recorded in preceptor’s opinions from before the Preceptor Toolkit presentation to the follow-up survey after the presentation.
