Resources for Preceptors

Thank you for agreeing to be a preceptor for the Boise State AGNP program. Our faculty, staff and students value and appreciate the time, attention, and guidance that you provide. We invite you to become familiar with the Adult Gerontology Nurse Practitioner curriculum and the course objectives for the rotations you will precept.

Required Form for New Preceptors

If you are a new preceptor, the School of Nursing requires the submission of a curriculum vitae and various credential, licensure, schedule, and patient load/acuity information.

What to Expect as a Preceptor

Your experience as a preceptor will vary based on whether you precept a master’s degree or graduate certificate student.

AGNP Graduate Certificate Program

Students in the graduate certificate program are already licensed nurse practitioners and will be expanding their existing knowledge and skills to either acute care or primary care adult gerontology.

AGNP Master of Nursing Program

Students in the master of nursing program are registered nurses and new to the clinical practices and responsibilities of being a nurse practitioner. However, before beginning their first rotation, master’s students complete one year (3 semesters) of advanced nursing courses and an on-campus, faculty-directed clinical.

Rotation Information

There are four different rotations: Introduction to Practice, Basic Health Management, Intermediate Health Management, and Advanced Health Management.

Each rotation will have an associated graduate level nursing course. Please become familiar with the course descriptions, objectives, and required clinical competencies for each rotation.

Please Note: Students in the Certificate program are already licensed nurse practitioners and do not complete the Introduction to Practice rotation.

Student Evaluation Tool

Boise State uses Typhon Group’s Nurse Practitioner Student Tracking (NPST) System, an internet-based system to evaluate student’s clinical competencies at the conclusion of each clinical rotation. Before you begin your first rotation, Typhon login information will be sent to you via email.

Program Feedback

In addition to completing student evaluations, Typhon has a tool for submitting a program survey on Boise State’s nurse practitioner program. We also encourage you to contact us with your questions and your feedback about the program is appreciated and valued.
