You must be a recently graduated student or apprentice, for example a newly qualified nurse, allied health professional, health care scientist, pharmacist, nursing associate, or a newly qualified non-registered assistant practitioner.

Alternatively, you may be returning to work after a five year break or entering a differing part of the professional register (e.g. health visiting). It is also available for a practitioner commencing a new role in a new field of practice.

Preceptorship lasts for a minimum of 12 months and it can be extended for a longer period if further support is needed.

A preceptorship lasts a minimum of 12 months.
