Great feedback for those looking for preceptors. Reading a syllabus shouldn't be on the shoulders of the preceptor. You might not start off with a clear idea for a project, but you need to know the concrete bits, like how many hours do you have to complete, what qualifications are required to be a preceptor (MSN, BSN, specific job role, must be an RN or ok to be non-clinical?). Thank you Kathleen!

I realize I am late to the party, commenting on a 16 month old presentation, but I highly recommend newbies to the informatics arena to watch this video. (Actually, Kathleen's tips and recommendations could be useful for ANY student in any program that will require practicum hours) I am a student in an MSN-Informatics program and this information will be extremely helpful in the very near future. Thank you Kathleen for the great tips for both finding a preceptor and how to market myself for positions I apply for.
