Abstract

Building clinical education training capacity in nurse practitioner programs is critical to build the primary care workforce and to address the access to care problem in the country. Challenges related to obtaining clinical sites and qualified preceptors are well reported, but few practical solutions are presented. Clinical sites and qualified preceptors willing to serve can be found, but nurse practitioner faculty must remove obstacles and strengthen resources by discovering untapped capacity. Nurse practitioner faculty can design, implement, and test innovative clinical models to maximize clinical training capacity. Clinical capacity development in geriatrics and long-term care, convenience care, distance immersions, correctional nursing, occupational health, and through interprofessional collaborations and faculty practice partnerships can be expanded.
