Optimization of Adult Learner Experiences by Clinical Research Preceptors via Application of Andragogical Principles
Utilization of andragogical (adult learning) principles by preceptors employed in various
clinical research settings in a post baccalaureate Clinical Research Associate Training Program
(CRATP) for minority registered nurses enhanced the overall learning process. Clinical
assignments — hands-on tasks and experiential learning — served as the clinical learning
platform that enabled students to achieve high-quality learning outcomes and contributed to the
overall success of the CRATP. Understanding and applying adult learning principles to enhance
the preceptor/student relationship is imperative to achieve optimal student learning outcomes.
Students, preceptors, and the training agencies cumulatively proved that the application of
andragogical principles to the development and implementation of clinical assignments
optimized the clinical experience of adult learners.
