Students are exposed to the six QSEN nursing competencies of patient-centered care, teamwork and collaboration, evidence-based practice (EBP), quality improvement (QI), safety, and informatics in the context of various patients/populations problems and settings. A key focus of the course will highlight the role of the professional nurse in utilizing evidenced-based improvement science methodologies to support a safety culture that embraces opportunities to improve health care delivery processes and health care outcomes.
