Every semester graduate students at the BYU College of Nursing submit an evaluation of learning from their preceptor. It is an opportunity not only for our preceptors to gain valuable insights on their strengths and things to improve, but it also allows the college to honor those preceptors who are making a significant impact on our students’ education.
For years the college has seen evaluations come back from students precepted by one of our amazing alumni, Michael S. Robinson (MS ’13). They include statements such as: “Mike seems truly invested in my learning and success,” and “I am so lucky to have Mike, not only as a preceptor but as a mentor,” and “Mike is so talented when it comes to caring for patients! I want to be just like him!” In addition to the students’ impressive reviews, the faculty are equally grateful for Mike’s preceptorship.
Faculty have made comments such as, “Mike is not only an exceptional clinician, but also an exceptional teacher. This allows him to provide a rich learning experience for our students” and “Mike is a phenomenal collaborator, mentor, leader, preceptor, and healthcare provider! He is the epitome of what we all strive to become.”
The College of Nursing is proud to present Mike Robinson with the 2020 Preceptor of the Year award! To Mike, we are grateful for you and all you do for our master’s students and program.
