© 2020 The Author(s) Health professionals cite a number of barriers to precepting nurse practitioner (NP) students, including lack of time and training. The primary aim of this study was to evaluate training of health professionals who teach NP students in a clinical teaching model, the One-Minute Preceptor (OMP). The OMP is a clinical teaching tool that has the potential to increase feedback to NP learners, improving their perceived clinical experience and learning opportunities. The secondary aim was to evaluate the impact of this training on perceived barriers to clinical teaching. The training included a 2-hour workshop on clinical teaching models within a community setting, with an emphasis on the OMP. The intervention was offered twice and included 57 participants from 4 different health professions. Data were collected before and after the intervention using an online survey. There were no differences between professions in outcomes, including barriers to teaching; however, an increase was found in providing positive and corrective feedback as well as overall teaching activities.
