experiences are defined by the Florida Board of Nursing in the Nurse Practice Act chapter 64B (15 a-g). All preceptor
practicum experiences are to be obtained on an adult medical-surgical unit or floor. The only exceptions considered are
for LPNs and require the permission of the faculty and program director. The clinical component of practicum will not
commence until all requirements for NUR 2462C are successfully met. The preceptor must be approved by the nursing
program and must be an RN licensed in the State of Florida. It is the responsibility of the student to meet with the preceptor
to review clinical expectation and goals prior to beginning clinical time. The student must obtain a resume from the
preceptor and a signed letter of agreement.
