The purpose of the QSEN Faculty Development Workshops is to develop the capacity of graduate nursing program faculty to teach other faculty in graduate-level programs how to incorporate quality and safety competencies and content into their programs of study. The proposed training workshops would target all faculty in graduate-level programs and their clinical partners to assure that the full diversity of graduate education, such as public health or systems management, is represented.
During this phase of QSEN, AACN will collaborate with expert consultants and stakeholders to achieve four primary goals, specifically:
- Developing consensus on the quality and safety competencies that must be accomplished in a graduate nursing program;
- Creating learning resources, modules, and interactive case studies to help prepare graduates with the competencies needed to provide quality and safe care;
- Hosting workshops to train faculty from over half of the nation’s graduate-level nursing programs and their clinical partners to facilitate the implementation of the consensus-based competencies; and
- Developing a Web-based learning program, a speakers’ bureau, an online collaboration community, and content-specific teaching materials for graduate-level faculty and their clinical partners.
