There is a growing call to include quality and safety content into nursing curricula that are already overburdened with content. Yet evidence suggests that many nursing schools have not yet done so. The authors describe 1 innovative, experiential approach to teaching quality and safety in the clinical environment. This approach, called “hip-pocket training,” was developed and implemented by clinical nursing faculty who found it convenient and effective in introducing core competencies related to quality and safety.
