ISAPN: Member Tools You Might Not Know About

Posted 4 months ago


At the Illinois Society for Advanced Practice Nursing, we want to provide our members with the tools that they need to succeed. That’s why our website has a number of helpful tools to help you with accomplishing your nursing goals. 

Illinois Advanced Practice Registered Nurses: Did you Know About our Preceptor Directory? 

One tool that is frequently used on our website is our Preceptor Directory. As most of us already know, a “preceptor” is an “experienced Advanced Practice Registered Nurse who is enthusiastic about the nursing profession and has a desire to teach. A preceptor prepares students using a variety of skills.”* Our Preceptor Directory can help you find --  or be --  a preceptor. 

How to use the Illinois Advanced Practice Nursing Preceptor Tool? 

You can find our Preceptor Directory here. Once you get there, there’s a tab to search for preceptors and a tab to search for students. You can also narrow your search down by location. Once you’ve initiated a search, our results will display location, specialty, practice setting, and preceptor description. 

Ultimately, this tool can be extremely valuable for those looking for a mentor as well as those looking to pass on their nursing knowledge. Using our Preceptor Directory, you’ll be able to find a preceptor or a student in no time at all!
