Truman State University's Nursing Program recently selected Pamela K. Baker, R.N.C. and B.S.N., and Chris Horton R.N., as its Acute Care Preceptors of the Year. Baker and Horton were honored at an awards luncheon at Truman on May 4. Both Baker and Horton work on the Obstetrics Unit at Northeast Regional Medical Center (NRMC) and have been preceptors for Truman nursing students for several years.

The Nursing Program at Truman selects highly qualified registered nurses to serve as role models, mentors and supervisors for senior nursing students in selected clinical areas of interest. These R.N. preceptors assist the faculty and students in meeting course objectives in the selected clinical areas. Each year faculty and senior students select and honor an acute care and a community preceptor of the year.
