Dr. Wilke, on being a preceptor:

“My experience as a preceptor for OCU has been extremely positive. I know exactly what to expect from the student and where they should be in their didactic and clinical learning. It is also very comforting to know that I can contact their instructors and know my feedback will be strongly considered. I also know exactly how the student is feeling and what is being asked of them from their OCU instructors. The OCU DNP is demanding and rigorous, as it should be, and I would expect nothing less from OCU. I have the same high expectations for my OCU students as their OCU instructors do and I hold those same high standards when I have students from other schools and have found that OCU students are coming to me so well prepared and with a broad knowledge base.”

Dr. Griffin, on being a preceptor:

"Precepting is my favorite part of the job. I’ve precepted students from several universities. It’s apparent in the “clinical readiness” of students, that not all Nurse Practitioner programs are created equally. I’m very proud of the quality of students coming out of OCU!"
