A preceptor is a cervical screening provider who teaches, inspires and serves as a role model to support the growth and development of nurses training to provide cervical screening services.

Preceptors provide students with an orientation to the workplace in a learning/teaching environment, enabling students to bridge the gap between theory and practice after completing a cervical screening training course.

All preceptors in Victoria are registered members of the Victorian Preceptor Program (VPP). The VPP is a state-wide program developed by Cancer Council Victoria, the University of Melbourne (Department of General Practice), Melbourne Sexual Health Centre and Sexual Health Victoria.
