2014 Basic BSN Preceptor Recognition

University of Wyoming faculty and students work with "preceptors" - nurses who mentor our students in a variety of clinical settings. Recently our school introduced a new award to recognize preceptors, especially those who go above and beyond. Students nominate preceptors for this award from each of our programs.

Chase Ommen, RN, BSN

The preceptor chosen from the BRAND program is Chase Ommen, who is employed by Sage West in the Women's Health Unit in Lander, Wyoming. The University of Wyoming School of Nursing student who wrote the winning nomination said the following:

Chase Ommen, a previous BRAND student, went above and beyond as a preceptor. Not only is she a hardworking and intelligent nurse, but on top of that she is a hard-working and talented teacher. She advocated for me as a student just as she advocated for her patients. Even on the busiest and most trying days, she was patient and focused on her patients and on making sure that I was developing as a student at the same time. Chase is an asset to the nursing field as both a nurse and a teacher, greatly deserving to be recognized.
