A Certified Preceptor is an individual that has met the applicable requirements as outlined in the Preceptor Application. If you are interested in becoming a Certified Preceptor please complete the Preceptor Application. This status must be renewed biennially.
The primary role of a certified preceptor is that of a mentor who coaches, directs and evaluates an Administrator-in-training (AIT) or an Emergency Permit Holder (EPH). A Certified Preceptor must sign a Preceptor Agreement with each AIT/EPH he or she agrees to mentor and must follow all applicable requirements, including monthly reporting to the Board.
- Administrator in Training (AIT): In consultation with the AIT, a certified preceptor will actively guide the individual through the program as outlined in the NAB Administrator in Training Domains of Practice Internship Manual. These manuals are available for a fee and can be ordered directly from www.nabweb.org. Reports must be submitted to the Board monthly. The reporting forms can be found in the manual.
- Emergency Permit Holders (EPH): An Emergency Permit Holder is under the direct supervision of a certified preceptor. Before an emergency permit will be issued, there must be an Emergency Permit Holder/Preceptor Agreement in place. Under this agreement, you are required to observe the emergency administrator at least two days a month in the facility in which the emergency administrator is serving and keep a written memorandum of what was accomplished or discussed at each visit. You must retain the dated memorandum for one year following the date of expiration of the emergency permit.
