UWG Nursing Preceptorship

 Want to practice real-world skills to help you in your nursing career? Through our nursing preceptorship program, Tanner Health System’s Get Healthy, Live Well is giving senior nursing students an opportunity to experience healthcare delivery outside of the classroom walls. 

Hands-on Health Education

In partnership with University of West Georgia’s Tanner Health System School of Nursing, the preceptorship program helps students increase their knowledge and gain hands-on skills through community health work. Preceptors can participate in several community health initiatives that focus on improving nutrition, increasing physical activity, and managing or preventing chronic disease. 

Putting Skills into Action

Since 2016, more than 200 senior nursing students have completed the preceptorship program. After orientation, preceptors have gone on to facilitate vital community health and wellness programs including:

  • Diabetes Prevention
  • Faith-Based Community Health Education Events
  • Freshstart Tobacco Cessation 
  • Get Healthy Kids Programs
