Level of EvidenceN/A
Quality and Safety Education for Nurses (QSEN) is a project in the United States that addresses the challenge of preparing future nurses with the knowledge, skills and attitude necessary to continuously improve the quality and safety of the healthcare systems within which they work. The six competencies are: patient centered care, teamwork and collaboration, evidence based practice, quality improvement, safety, and informatics. The literature indicates that health care providers in Jordan have evidenced concern over adverse patient events, including medication errors and falls (Mrayyan, 2012; Hayajneh, AbuAlRub, & Almakhzoomy, 2010). To improve patient safety it is essential to focus on both systems problems and individual quality and safety. Strategies to increase QSEN competencies in students in clinical settings include improving communication using ISBAR (Introduction, Situation, Background, Assessment, Recommendation/Response) for reporting and doing Root Cause Analysis to identify underlying problems that lead to patient incidents. It is also necessary to evaluate clinical student for knowledge, skills and attitudes in alignment with the QSEN competencies.
