Bethel University's Nurse-Midwifery program thanks you and your midwifery practice for agreeing to participate in our program as a preceptor for our students.  We are very grateful for the commitment you have made to educate our future nurse-midwives.  At Bethel, we are deeply committed to the success of our students and you, as a preceptor, are integral to their success.

Ongoing Support

The information provided in this website/handbook is only one of the ways we hope to support you as you support our students. The links on the left side of the website page will guide you to valuable resources for our program, such as plans of study and evaluations.

We know that serving as a preceptor is a significant commitment of time and responsibility.  We hope, as a program, that we can help to ease that burden for you by providing the following:

  • A dedicated Clinical Coordinator to assist with paperwork, onboarding needs, and a first-stop liaison for any student concerns.
  • The ability to obtain ACNM CEUs for the time you spend as a preceptor.  Please indicate your interest on the orientation forms; we will draft the letter you need to submit to AMCB to receive your CEU.
  • Access to our syllabi and reading lists for the courses in which you are a preceptor. Send an email to the faculty member, and she will forward you the information.
  • The possibility of student research. Our students are participating in a critical review of the literature for their Master’s Project. If your practice has a clinical issue you would like to have researched, please notify either the Clinical Coordinator or Program Director.  We would love to partner with you. Students will be given the opportunity to choose this research topic and present their project to you at the end of their program.

Again, thank you for giving of your valuable time and energy to our students at Bethel University and to growing the profession of nurse-midwifery.  Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or concerns.  Contact the Clinical Coordinator at 651.638.6743 (800.255.8706, ext. 6743) with any questions you may have.
