excellent free resource! :yeah:

the overall goal for the quality and safety education for nurses (qsen) project is to meet the challenge of preparing future nurses who will have the knowledge, skills and attitudes (ksas) necessary to continuously improve the quality and safety of the healthcare systems within which they work.

qsen has been funded since its inception in october, 2005, by the robert wood johnson foundation. phases i and ii were led by linda cronenwett and gwen sherwood at unc-chapel hill and a national advisory board and distinguished faculty. they pursued strategies to build will and develop and pilot curricular approaches to assure that future nursing graduates develop competencies in patient-centered care, teamwork and collaboration, evidence-based practice, quality improvement, safety, and informatics.

the qsen learning module series was designed to help both new and experienced faculty integrate the quality and safety competencies into their nursing programs. each module explores a particular topic or issue, provides resources, and raises questions to engage users in expanding or strengthening the learning experiences they create with students around quality and safety.

in the introductory video (linked on the right) pam ironside, the developer and editor of the module series, provides an overview of this resource.

the learning modules were developed as part of the phase iii qsen grant funded by the robert wood johnson foundation.
