Preceptors are the backbone of delivering clinical placements. The Saskatchewan Health Authority values and supports clinical placements for our learners as a mechanism to create the future workforce needed for our province’s health system.
The resources available on this page should help answer any questions you may have about being a preceptor. If you have any additional questions with regards to supports available to preceptors in Saskatchewan please
If you are interested in becoming a preceptor, please talk to your unit manager/facility director directly to indicate your interest in this role.
The Saskatchewan-based nursing programs host preceptor workshops on a regular basis. Preceptors from all health science disciplines are welcome. Participants should be aware that the situations and examples discussed are generally within a nursing context and that nursing-related examples are used throughout.
For dates, locations, and registration information for upcoming workshops in Saskatoon and Regina, please
In 2008 CLIPP obtained funding from the Saskatchewan Ministry of Health to create and manage a Provincial Preceptor Recognition Program. The primary goal of this initiative was to recognize all health sciences preceptors for their valuable contributions and provide for further professional development opportunities for preceptors so they can be effective role models and educators. Future supports for preceptors are being considered by the SHA.
Between 2008 and 2016 a number of preceptor activities and initiatives have been supported with this funding, including:
In April 2016, a call for proposals was issued to post secondary institutions to develop and submit funding proposals for projects focused on preceptor professional development. Funding support was subsequently awarded to three projects, each of which has led to the development of new and unique learning resources for Saskatchewan health science preceptors. Resources developed through these projects are available on the Videos and Resources page.
