Rural California Nursing Preceptorships

Up-and-Coming Sessions

  • The application period for summer session 2020 is closed.
Winter Session 2020/2021
  • Applications for the winter session will open on August 24 and close on September 7. 

    Eligible students previously accepted into the Summer 2020 session who were unable to participate due to program cancellation will automatically be included in the winter session.  Eligibility requires that students be currently enrolled in a school of nursing during the time of their preceptorship assignment, or that they possess a valid RN license.

    Please be advised that due to the Covid-19 Pandemic we are no longer able to offer housing stays. Please be advised that all students will be responsible for making their own housing arrangements.

Build Confidence and Competence

Imagine engaging in a unique clinical nursing experience that builds confidence and competence. The RCNP Program is designed to give student and graduate nurses (RNs) an opportunity to work in a rural or semi-rural clinical hospital setting. Students work one-on-one with an RN preceptor(s), engaging in as much independent nursing practice as their skills permit.
