Veterans Affairs Quality Scholars (VAQS)
In 2009, QSEN funded the integration of nurse scholars (pre and post doctoral fellowships) into the VA Quality Scholars Program.
Since this time over 50 nurses have completed a 2 year fellowship in Quality Improvement in one of seven sites (VAQS.org).
The Offfice of Academic Affiliations has opened up a call for new sites and/or redesignation of existing sites. If your school of nursing and school of medicine is affiliated with a VA, you are eligible to submit. Please see the call for proposals.
