Abstract

OBJECTIVES:

To examine the perceived benefit of job and career satisfaction among pharmacist preceptors and to explore other factors that might influence satisfaction.

METHODS:

A cross-sectional self-administered survey instrument was mailed to pharmacists in the South Central region of the United States who had active 2010 licenses to investigate whether being a pharmacist preceptor increases job and career satisfaction.

RESULTS:

Twenty-three percent of the 363 respondents were active preceptors and 62% of these reported that they had been preceptors at some point in the past. Being an active preceptor was significantly related to increased job satisfaction (p = 0.01) but not to career satisfaction. Having a perceived benefit of continuing education and being professionally challenged at work also were associated with increased job and career satisfaction (p < 0.001).

CONCLUSIONS:

Pharmacist preceptors have higher levels of self-reported job satisfaction.

KEYWORDS:

career satisfaction practice experiences; job satisfaction; preceptor
