: Background: The Institute of Medicine (IOM) and the Quality and Safety Education for Nurses (QSEN) project have identified six nursing competencies and supported their integration into undergraduate and graduate nursing curricula nationwide. But integration of those competencies into clinical practice has been limited, and evidence for the progression of competency proficiency within clinical advancement programs is scant. Using an evidence-based approach and building on the competencies identified by the IOM and QSEN, a team of experts at an academic health system developed eight competency domains and 186 related knowledge, skills, and attitudes (KSAs) for professional nursing practice...

Quality and Safety Education for Nurses (QSEN) has been prominent in nursing education for 10 years. Since its inception, faculty have used the QSEN competencies as a framework for developing teaching strategies and tools, but there are few findings available to support this practice. This article describes the process of developing a QSEN-based clinical evaluation instrument for a prelicensure nursing program and establishing content validation for its items using the content validity index.

With the six QSEN competencies woven throughout the baccalaureate nursing curriculum, which includes high-fidelity simulation, the aim of this research was to uncover deficits in QSEN-related clinical opportunities. Pre-licensure BSN nursing students enrolled in a sophomore-level medical-surgical rotation augmented with 25 percent simulation were observed directly, with time-on-task for each QSEN competency recorded and tabulated. The students were found to spend little time addressing several of the six competency areas in both clinical and simulation settings...

The purpose of this project was to revise the curriculum at a diploma school of nursing to meet the call issued by QSEN. Course objectives were revised and principles of quality and safety were threaded throughout the curriculum with classroom, clinical, and simulation strategies. Students and faculty completed the Healthcare Professionals Patient Safety Assessment Curriculum Survey, and preceptors were surveyed regarding students' ability to meet QSEN competencies. No difference was found post-implementation, but statistically significant differences were found between students and faculty and between students at the start of the nursing program and one year later...

There is a critical need for leadership in quality and safety to reform today's disparate spectrum of health services to serve patients in complex health care environments. Nurse graduates of degree completion programs (registered nurse-bachelor of science in nursing [RN-BSN]) are poised for leadership due to their recent education and nursing practice experience. The authors propose that integration of systems thinking into RN-BSN curricula is essential for developing these much needed leadership skills. The purpose of this article is to introduce progressive teaching strategies to help nurse educators achieve the student competencies described in the second essential of the BSN Essentials document (American Association of Colleges of Nursing, 2009), linking them with the competencies in Quality and Safety Education for Nurses (QSEN; L...
