Rural California Nursing Preceptorships

Up-and-Coming Sessions

  • RCNP will select 35 participants for its Winter 2021/2022 cohort. Undergraduate students will be considered from all nursing schools, giving first priority to Chico State and surrounding North State schools of nursing (both BSN and ADN). In addition, applications from RN Refresher students and graduate students will be considered as well.
  • Applications for Winter Session 2021/2022 will open on August 23, 2021. To be considered, applications must be received (postmarked) by September 10, 2021.

Build Confidence and Competence

Imagine engaging in a unique clinical nursing experience that builds confidence and competence. The RCNP Program is designed to give students 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.
