Preceptorship : making a difference

Bowen, Allison, Fox, Robyn, & Burridge, Christine (2012) Preceptorship : making a difference. Journal for Nurses in Staff Development, 28(2), E12-E15.


A preceptor project at the Royal Brisbane and Women's Hospital in Queensland, Australia, explored existing levels of preceptorship support during the transition processes of newly employed or transferred nurses and midwives. Initiatives adopted have enhanced the implementation and maintenance of preceptorship principles and communication processes and defined accountability and responsibilities. Outcomes have contributed to enhanced role clarity, improved communication, increased support for teaching and learning, and infrastructure processes to facilitate the preceptor-preceptee relationship and increased retention.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
