Preceptor Development Modules

Preceptor development modules are provided by Southern New Hampshire Area Health Education Center (SNHAHEC) and the Advanced Nursing Education Workforce (ANEW) grant.

The UNH Advanced Nursing Education Workforce (ANEW) program funds Primary Care Family Nurse Practitioner (NP) and Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (PMHNP) students with trainee-ship awards to students who work and train in rural and under-served settings. ANEW provides NP students with the practice, preceptor, and peer support they need to address current workforce challenges in these unique primary care environments. ANEW also provides support and professional development opportunities for preceptors working alongside ANEW trainee-ship students.  

ANEW professional development focuses on the key, high priority health concerns of rural New Hampshire, including behavioral health, substance use disorder, and telehealth providing continuing education for both the preceptor and NP preceptee using an all-teach all-learn continuing education strategy. 

This grant is supported by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) as part of an award totaling $2.6 million dollars with a percentage financed with non-governmental sources.
