The University of Michigan School of Nursing Office of Practice and Professional Graduate Programs held a Preceptor Appreciation Dinner for their Michigan Medicine APRN and nurse-midwife preceptors on November 12th, 2019 at Mediterrano in Ann Arbor. The dinner was attended by over 70 APRNs and Nurse-Midwives who were recognized and thanked for their contributions to the education of APRN and nurse-midwifery students from the University of Michigan School of Nursing. Laura Kaufman was awarded the 2019 Preceptor of the Year award. She has been a preceptor for the School of Nursing for over 20 years, having hosted 15 students in just the last five years. The University of Michigan Nurse-Midwifery Service was awarded the 2019 Departmental Preceptors of the Year award. As a group, the nurse-midwives have hosted students for over 20 years. They have had over 80 of our nurse-midwifery students in just the last four years. In addition, they are also dedicated to supporting medical students, resident physicians, and Ann Arbor Public School students who are interested in midwifery. The School of Nursing Office of Practice and Professional Graduate Programs wishes to thank ALL of our preceptors for everything they do to support our graduate nursing students. We are sincerely grateful for your partnership and look forward to continuing to provide excellent learning experiences for our students. We couldn’t do this without you!
