2016 BRAND Preceptor Recognition

University of Wyoming faculty and students work with "preceptors" - nurses who mentor our students in a variety of clinical settings. The Fay W. Whitney School of Nursing, in an effort to recognize preceptors--especially those who go above and beyond--presents an award annually to a preceptor in those UW School of Nursing programs with clinical components. Students nominate preceptors for these awards.

Heather Dronek, R.N.

The preceptor chosen from the BRAND program is Heather Dronek, who works in the Progressive Care Unit at Wyoming Medical Center in Casper. The student who nominated our winner said the following:

"Heather was absolutely amazing. She has over 27 years of experience as an RN, and is so willing to share her knowledge. She always took the time to explain what we were doing and why. She balanced a rigorous workload, always had a smile on her face and a kind word for her patients, colleagues, and myself as a student."

- BRAND student 2016, Marie Cook

The School of Nursing announced the award at the annual Nightingale Ceremony on the University of Wyoming campus in the fall.
