Nursing Education Perspectives: March/April 2016 - Volume 37 - Issue 2 - p 97-100 doi: 10.5480/14-1323 Buy Metrics Abstract The purpose of this project was to revise the curriculum at a diploma school of nursing to meet the call issued by QSEN. Course objectives were revised and principles of quality and safety were threaded throughout the curriculum with classroom, clinical, and simulation strategies. Students and faculty completed the Healthcare Professionals Patient Safety Assessment Curriculum Survey, and preceptors were surveyed regarding students’ ability to meet QSEN competencies. No difference was found post-implementation, but statistically significant differences were found between students and faculty and between students at the start of the nursing program and one year later. © 2016 Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, Inc.
