INP Nurse Preceptor Fellowship

Now Accepting 2017 Applications for the INP Preceptor Fellowship Program-due February 26th 2017.



The goal of the INP Preceptorship program is to support UWMC nurses in incorporating global health into their professional practice in resource-limited settings.


Each INP Nurse Preceptor will be assigned to our hospital partners at our Cambodia site. The fellowship will be a two-week visit onsite at Calmette Hospital and Khmer Soviet Friendship Hospital.  Successful applicants will receive five additional professional leave days to support their time abroad. 

The INP Nurse Preceptor will work with our Local Nurse Champions (LNCs) to help implement an on the job nursing education and training program. Prior to their travel, each INP Nurse Preceptor will receive one training day in the specific quality improvement program they have been assigned to.  Upon their return, they will share their work at the INP presentation and can continue their involvement through future site visits, volunteer time with local projects, and/or precepting new ICU Nurse Preceptors.  

UWMC Support: Successful applicants will receive five 8 hour professional leave days, prorated to their FTE, in addition to their existing professional leave time to use while abroad.
