AACN Workshop Modules

 AACN has launched the Quality and Safety Education for Nurses (QSEN) learning module series, a free faculty development resource for nurse educators teaching in undergraduate and graduate programs.

Between 2010 and 2014, AACN led a faculty development effort linked to the national QSEN initiative funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. To build on AACN’s commitment to further disseminate the QSEN teaching strategies, AACN has launched a total of 13 web-based learning modules focused on six core competencies:

 Undergraduate QSEN Learning Modules

o   Patient-centered care

o   Teamwork and collaboration

o   Evidence-based practice (EBP)

o   Quality improvement (QI)

o   Safety

o   Informatics

Graduate QSEN Learning Modules

o   Patient-centered care

o   Teamwork and collaboration

o   Evidence-based practice (EBP)

o   Quality improvement (QI)

o   Safety

o   Informatics

o   Call to Action

These cutting edge, interactive learning modules are available to all nurse faculty in entry-level and graduate-level registered nursing programs and can be accessed through AACN’s collaboration community. Faculty will have the opportunity to earn American Nurses Credentialing Center contact hours for each QSEN competency learning module.
