Welcome to the Preceptor Academy

What is the Preceptor Academy?

As a preceptor you can make a difference! The KentuckyOne Health Preceptor Academy provides comprehensive training and support to help you guide and educate the next generation of health care professionals. The training uses a blended learning approach which allows you to fully participate in the program no matter your primary learning style and to discuss your successes, challenges, and take your learning to the next level. Staff who complete the program will be recognized for their accomplishments and be pinned as a preceptor.
