About this eLearning Course

Welcome to PREP LTC for nursing professionals, personal support workers, and students!

The PREP-LTC course consists of eight (8) modules. Each module takes approximately 40-90 minutes to complete. The entire course should take about seven (7) hours to complete. For your LTC home to receive backfill funds, you must complete all eight (8) modules. The modules include downloadable resources, learning exercises, expert interviews and references. Learning is self-directed. Learners will start with the Long-Term Care module.

Long-term care clinical student placements are unique in many ways. Providing a good experience for future team members is essential to strengthening the LTC sector, including its team members. The student-preceptor relationship is very important and can be a rewarding career experience for both.

PREP LTC provides students and preceptors with knowledge and skills across a wide variety of topics related to clinical student placement and the LTC setting.

In this course, you will learn about:

  • the roles of the preceptor and student in the clinical student placement.
  • a debriefing model for reflective feedback conversations between preceptors and students.
  • unique opportunities available in the LTC setting.
  • five key areas of knowledge in LTC practice.
  • three key approaches to learning.
  • readiness and its relevance to the roles of student and preceptor. 
  • ways to develop well-defined learning objectives for the clinical student placement.
  • concepts of anti-oppressive practice. 
  • ways to develop clinical reasoning. 
  • concepts of reflective practice and their application to the preceptor-student relationship.
  • components of evaluation.
  • strategies to successfully prevent and manage conflicts.

You will be asked to complete a survey at the beginning and end of the course. When you complete the course, you will receive an Ontario Centres for Learning, Research and Innovation in Long-Term Care certificate. Please continue through all eight (8) modules until notified that you have completed the course. There is an option to receive a certificate of completion per module. For your LTC home to receive backfill funds, you must complete all eight (8) modules.

Who is this course for?

This course is for nursing students, personal support work students,  and preceptors working in LTC settings. It recognizes both students and preceptors as essential members of the LTC care team. You will also be able to apply what you learn to other healthcare settings.


The PREP LTC eLearning course was developed by the Ontario CLRI at Baycrest and is built on the success of the Ministry-funded Preceptor Education Program (PEP) in collaboration with the Faculty of Health Sciences at the University of Western Ontario and with Fanshawe College School of Nursing.

We would like to thank the people who contributed to the development and review of content for this course.
