The overall goal through all phases of QSEN is to address the challenge of preparing future nurses with the knowledge, skills and attitudes (KSA) necessary to continuously improve the quality and safety of the healthcare systems in which they work.. In order accomplish this goal, six competencies were defined in Phase I of the project.. These competencies included five from the Institute of Medicine (IOM) -patient centered care, teamwork and collaboration, evidence-based practice, quality improvement and informatics- as well as safety.. In addition to these definitions, sets of knowledge, skills and attitudes for each of the six competencies were created for use in nursing pre-licensure programs (Cronenwett, et.. al.. , 2007).. Pilot schools integrated the six competencies in their nursing programs in Phase II of QSEN.. The pilot schools have shared their work on the QSEN website (.. ), contributing teaching and development strategies as well as other collaborative resources.. Phase III was funded in November, 2008 and will.. Continue to promote innovation in the development and evaluation of methods to elicit and assess student learning of KSA of the six IOM/QSEN competencies and the widespread sharing of these competencies;.. Develop faculty expertise necessary to assist the learning and assessment of achievement of quality and safety competencies in all types of nursing programs;.. PRESS RELEASE.. November 2005, Phase I.. Robert Wood Johnson Foundation funds national study to educate nursing students on patient safety and healthcare quality.. CHAPEL HILL -- In an effort to prepare future nurses with the knowledge and skills necessary to improve patient care and the health care environments in which they work, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation has awarded the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Nursing a $590,000 grant to evaluate and enhance nursing school curricula on the topics of quality and safety.. "It is an honor to partner with the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation on a project that will change what and how we teach future health professionals," said Dr.. Linda Cronenwett, School of Nursing dean and project director.. "In the end, we expect these changes to make a difference in the quality and safety of health care everywhere.. The multi-phase project, Quality and Safety Education for Nurses (QSEN) began in October, 2005.. In the first18-month phase, Cronenwett is leading a panel of 17 national nursing leaders to outline the core knowledge, skills and attitudes that should be mastered by prelicensure nursing students.. Gwen Sherwood, UNC School of Nursing Associate Dean and Professor, serves as the project co-investigator.. Comprising the QSEN team include: Pamela Mitchell PhD, RN,FAAN, Associate Dean for Research, University of Washington; Susan Grant RN, MS, Chief Nursing Officer at the University of Washington Medical Center; Joanne Disch PhD, RN,FAAN, Professor and Director at the University of Minnesota School of Nursing; Dori Taylor Sullivan PhD, RN, CNA, CPHQ, Chair and Associate Professor of Nursing at Sacred Heart University, Fairfield Connecticut; Judith Warren, PhD, RN,BC,FAAN,FACMI, Associate Professor at the University of Kansas; Jean Johnson PhD, RNC, FAAN, Senior Associate Dean of Health Sciences, George Washington University; Jane Barnsteiner PhD, RN, FAAN, Professor and Director of Nursing Translational Research, University of Pennsylvania; Shirley Moore, PhD, RN, FAAN, Associate Dean for Research, Case Western Reserve University; Pamela Ironside, PhD, RN, Assistant Professor, University of Wisconsin at Madison; Carol Durham, MSN,RN, Clinical Associate Professor, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Nursing, and Lisa Day, PhD, RN, Assistant Clinical Professor at the University of California at San Francisco..

The expert panel will examine key content areas including: patient-centered care, professional communication, teamwork and collaboration, evidence-based practice, informatics, systems-thinking and improvement, and error reduction, human factors theory and safety.. A range of strategies for clinical, classroom and simulation-based learning will be developed, including options aimed at interprofessional student groups.. Additionally, the QSEN team will develop an electronic compendium of patient safety and quality related resource materials and support a website dedicated to the grant's accomplishments.. In subsequent project phases, the QSEN project team will partner with leading professional associations to disseminate information, support faculty development and address the same challenges for graduate nursing education.. "We know that there are significant problems related to safety and quality in the U.. health-care system," said Cronenwett.. "To improve, health professionals need to be able to determine what constitutes good care from the scientific evidence, identify the gaps between good care and local actual care, and know what activities are necessary to close any gaps.. QSEN aims to assist Nursing educators who are eager to discover effective ways to promote student learning that will prepare them for becoming full partners in the work of improving patient safety and healthcare systems.. The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation focuses on the pressing health and health care issues facing our country.. As the nation's largest philanthropy devoted exclusively to improving the health and health care of all Americans, the Foundation works with a diverse group of organizations and individuals to identify solutions and achieve comprehensive, meaningful and timely change..

June 1, 2012.. Case Western Reserve University Launches New Institute Focused on Quality and Safety Education for Nurses.. New Institute Marks Transition of Long-Running QSEN Project from UNC to Case Western Reserve School of Nursing.. Tucson, Ariz.. — The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) today announced that after nearly seven years under the leadership of Linda Cronenwett, PhD, RN, FAAN, of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Nursing, the groundbreaking Quality and Safety Education for Nurses (QSEN) project is transitioning into a new QSEN Institute under the direction of Mary A.. "Dr.. Cronenwett and the QSEN project have made an extraordinary contribution to the profession of nursing, and to the health care that Americans receive today and into the future," said RWJF Senior Adviser for Nursing Susan B.. Hassmiller, PhD, RN, FAAN.. "In the seven years that the Foundation has supported the project at UNC, Dr.. Cronenwett and her colleagues have literally rewritten the textbook on nursing education, helping to create a generation of nurses trained both to deliver care to patients and to contribute to the continuous process of increasing the safety, reliability and quality of care.. Dolansky has worked with QSEN since 2008 consulting with schools of nursing around the nation on incorporating QSEN's core competencies into their curricula.. As part of the transition to Case Western Reserve, QSEN will continue its annual national forums, at which nursing faculty leaders from around the nation gather to share research and innovations in curricular design and teaching strategies.. Case Western Reserve will also continue the QSEN website, which provides vast resources, including teaching strategies, curricular modules, and other materials intended to help nursing schools integrate QSEN competencies into their curriculum, and will host the 2013 QSEN National Forum.. The announcement of the transition was made at the 2012 QSEN National Forum in Tucson, Arizona.. "We've inherited a dynamic and profession-altering project, thanks to the work led by Dr.. Cronenwett and Dr.. Gwen Sherwood at UNC," Dolansky said.. "Much of the work of the last few years has been sharing with colleagues around the nation innovative ways to deliver quality and safety education.. That's exactly what we're going to continue doing at Case Western Reserve, making it as easy as we can for educators, faculty leaders and clinicians across the nation—the globe for that matter—to access the materials.. The QSEN project launched in 2005 at UNC and unfolded in four phases, each supported by RWJF grants.. The overall goal of the project is to prepare nurses who have the knowledge, skills and attitudes necessary to continuously improve the quality and safety of the healthcare systems in which they work.. In the early years of the project, Cronenwett and her UNC team worked with QSEN faculty—experts drawn from institutions across the nation—to define a comprehensive set of quality and safety competencies for nursing and to propose training targets for each.. QSEN faculty then surveyed nursing colleges to gauge the extent to which these competencies were already included in curricula, whether faculty were sufficiently expert to teach them, and how well nursing students were learning them.. That effort also included an 18-month learning collaborative of 15 nursing schools around the nation whose faculties generated strategies for fostering learning of six QSEN competencies – patient-centered care, teamwork and collaboration, evidence-based practice, quality improvement, safety, and informatics.. Beginning in 2009, Cronenwett and her colleagues partnered with the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN) to focus on developing the faculty expertise needed at the nation's nursing schools to teach the QSEN core competencies; instilling the competencies in textbooks, licensing, accreditation and certification; and promoting continued innovation in teaching the competencies.. The final phase of QSEN at UNC culminated in the publication of a new textbook,.. , edited by Gwen Sherwood, PhD, RN, FAAN, and Jane Barnsteiner, PhD, RN, FAAN, featuring chapter contributions from a distinguished roster of experts, including several members of the QSEN Faculty and Advisory Board.. In addition to the creation of the Case Western Reserve University QSEN Institute, AACN will continue its work in preparing nurse faculty to teach quality and safety content.. That effort will now focus chiefly on graduate education programs, providing educational resources and training to enhance the ability of faculty in master's and doctoral nursing programs to teach quality and safety competencies.. RWJF is supporting AACN's work in this area.. Materials created during this initiative will be disseminated to all graduate schools of nursing through webinars, journal articles, and web resources, as well as other communication channels.. AACN plans a series of QSEN faculty development workshops that will begin in early 2013.. "We're delighted to pass the baton to Case Western Reserve and AACN," said Cronenwett.. "Our QSEN work was essentially aimed at altering professional identity formation so that a new type of nursing school graduate would be developed, someone who would come into the workforce with knowledge about how to create and continuously improve systems of care.. Our colleagues at Case Western Reserve and AACN are long-time leaders in quality and safety education in nursing, and we're thrilled that they're taking lead roles in continuing this vital work..
