Quality Improvement Practicum
Quality health care is dependent on consistent, systematic, and collaborative efforts of all healthcare personnel through the shared priority objective of positive patient outcomes. In this practicum on Quality Improvement, students will apply concepts of the NURSN5950 Nursing Leadership and Management course and engage in established healthcare quality improvement initiatives. This interactive course explores quality improvement, research processes, knowledge of health-care systems, and innovative corrective measures as it relates to safe, effective nursing practice. Through the support of student group-led analysis and discussion of selected quality improvement measures, students will explore strategies and roadmaps to quality healthcare through the lens of multidisciplinary collaboration and nursing leadership.
