On a daily basis, I hear from nurse practitioner students on social media, in email and private messages who are desperate for a preceptor. Often they have been turned down multiple times and are at their wits end.
The hardest part of all this is that NP students are unable to complete their requirements and will often have to delay graduation or even drop out of their programs. In healthcare today, we need more providers, not less.
Fortunately someone has created a way that NP students, preceptors and universities can come together. In the end everyone wins.
On this episode of SAGEClinician I talk with Dino Soriano who is the founder of ClinicalMatchMe which was developed to meet the needs of these students, as well as the NPs who want to precept them.
Listen in as we talk about this sometime "controversial" issue!
Dino is the founder and CEO of ClinicalMatchMe which was started out of his own frustration and need as a NP Student. His background includes ER and trauma nursing prior to pursuing his FNP. He is currently enrolled in a doctoral program. He holds degrees in healthcare administration, nursing leadership and management and as an FNP.
