April Is National Preceptor Month

National Preceptor Month is the time to recognize and thank the practitioners who take the time and make the effort to create the next generation of dietetics professionals by teaching students in their workplace. Recognize the importance of preceptors and take part in the festivities of National Preceptor Month: Show your appreciation for preceptors throughout the entire month.

Some ideas to show your appreciation:

  • Send a note: Even a few words to say "thank you" go a long way.
  • Thank your preceptor’s boss for allowing him or her to be a preceptor.
  • Hang a sign on your preceptor’s office door, so everyone knows he or she is helping to create tomorrow's leaders.
  • Encourage preceptors to continue helping prepare future dietetics professionals.

Email your stories and pictures to

While National Preceptor Month is a time to give thanks, the Academy is still actively recruiting preceptors for the Find-a-Preceptor Database. Many practitioners have been recruited but we always need more. Program directors and students who are members of the Academy can search the database and contact individual preceptors within a certain geographical or specialty practice area.

There are many upcoming projects and events this year – more information is to come on National Preceptor Month.
