The Quality and Safety Education for Nurses (QSEN) project was initiated in 2005 with funding from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation to prepare nurses to “improve the quality and safety of the healthcare systems in which they work” (QSEN, n.d.). During the initial phases of the project, six competencies with concomitant knowledge, skills and attitudes (KSAs) for each were developed and implemented in pre-licensure nursing programs. Academic faculty development related to teaching the QSEN competencies was an important component of the initiative. In 2012, graduate KSAs were developed to guide “curricular development for formal academic graduate programs and for use as criteria for certification and continuing education of advanced practice nurses” (QSEN, n.d.).
