dc.description.abstractBackground: A Hospital Medicine practice at a large academic medical center needs additional Nurse Practitioners (NP) and Physician Assistants (PA) preceptors and is without a formal NP and PA preceptor education program.|Methods: Participants were eligible for 5 hours of continuous medical education (CME) credit upon course completion. Knowledge was examined in precourse test and posttest score. Self-efficacy was examined using a modified “Preceptor Self-Efficacy” tool. Willingness to precept was tracked.|Results: Knowledge of course content improved from an average of 69.4% to 90.6%. Self-efficacy improved with a 35.2% change increase. Willingness to precept improved. Qualitative themes emerged including; excitement to precept, helpful course, and time constraints.|Conclusions: An online NP and PA preceptor training program increases preceptor knowledge, self-efficacy, and willingness to serve as a preceptor. Additional research is needed to explore the time constraints to serving as a NP or PA preceptor in the inpatient environment.en_US
