This micro site has been developed to guide Northern Ireland employers and managers of Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) registrants in the implementation, audit and evaluation of preceptorship.  It is a useful resource for preceptees and preceptors including those responsible for leading and managing preceptorship within their organisations.  Northern Ireland’s (NI) Preceptorship Framework enables a consistent approach to preceptorship for those employed as nurses, midwives or specialist community public health nurses across NI.

View the NMC published Principles for Preceptorship (2020) here.  NIPEC will commence work in 2021, in partnership with its key stakeholders, to update the NI Preceptorship Framework (2013) and this microsite to reflect the new principles and also ensure alignment with the NI Supervision Framework.
