Enhancing quality, safety nationally
By Jimmy Creed
The University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) School of Nursing has been tapped by the Quality and Safety Education for Nurses (QSEN) Institute to be part of a national effort to increase quality and safety education for nurses at all levels through the development of regional educational outreach hubs.
The Collaborative’s objective is to train nurse educators, practicing nurses, and nurse leaders on the importance of instilling quality and safety values within today’s nursing and health care workforce.
Rachel Z. Booth Endowed Chair in Nursing and Professor Patrician A. Patrician, PhD, RN, FAAN, and Associate Professor Rebecca S. Miltner, PhD, RN, CNL, NEA-BC, are leading the new initiative at UAB, called the Deep South QSEN Regional Collaborative.
