Even before the COVID19 pandemic, telehealth was becoming more and more important for providing access to health care especially in rural areas, health professional shortage areas, and medically underserved areas.  Now in this watershed moment, telehealth has become central to providing health care generally.  Please see this 52-min video from University of California at San Francisco about teleprecepting, especially for Psychiatric-Mental Health Nurse Practitioner students.]

The following is a sample of a letter for preceptors who are now using telehealth or using it more.  Even as healthcare providers are adjusting to telehealth, nurse practitioner students can be included for teleprecepting.
