Lynn McComas, MSN, ANP-C President and Owner of PreceptorLink®️ (formerly Advanced Practice Link) has over 20 years experience as a nurse practitioner. She is an active leader in the NP community and has held many leadership positions as an NP and nurse. She has a heart for medicine and a love of business! Previously a Principal at Advanced Practice Prep, Lynn helped connect hundreds of practitioners nationwide. She now brings her leadership, experience and dedication to PreceptorLink®️. Lynn has spoken nationwide on preceptor-related issues, and she also contributes to the topic on LinkedIn, YouTube and her blog. She is the two-time past President of the California Association of Nurse Practitioners (CANP) San Diego North Chapter and has held many other Board positions as well.

Lynn is passionate about helping solve the "preceptor problem" for nurse practitioners. She recognizes the rapidly growing NP and PA professions, the increased number of NP and PA schools and the unmet need for preceptor sites. Whether change comes through a paradigm shift in NP schools, a reduction in barriers to precepting, incentives to precept, or other methods, she is involved in the conversation and trying to be a positive change agent. Lynn wants to help her beloved profession grow stronger and loves to support her fellow practitioners- whether in the clinical setting or in the business world. Follow her at Twitter for her medical and NP-related Tweets: https://twitter.com/LynnMcComas or on LinkedIn.
