ABSTRACT
The author reflects on the instructional support and enhancement approaches that should be afforded to preceptors. He cites various issues that emerged in the discussion of critical care nurses including expectations of nurse preceptors, initial educational preparation of nurses to serve as preceptors and development and educational support of nurse preceptors. He urges all critical care nurse readers to offer their recommendations on the issues, to identify difficult to manage scenarios, programs, topics and problems that preceptors need to be covered.
