Quality And Safety Education For Nurses (QSEN)

Decent Essays
Good afternoon Susan,

Prior to this week assignment I have never heard about the Quality and Safety Education for Nurses (QSEN). This week I learned that the QSEN main focus is to prepare future nurses who exhibit the basic fundamental knowledge, skill and beliefs that are needed to enhance the quality and safety of their workplace (Cronenwett et al., 2007). I think that their purpose is important because I remember how it was when I first graduated nursing school. I had the book smarts but had no real knowledge of what is was to be an actually nurse. I would say if it wasn't for my awesome preceptor I probably would have quit after my first day working in the intensive care unit.
