Since its inception, faculty have used the QSEN competencies as a framework for developing teaching strategies and tools, but there are few findings available to support this practice. This article describes the process of developing a QSEN-based clinical evaluation instrument for a prelicensure nursing program and establishing content validation for its items using the content validity index.
