Implementing a QSEN Focused Transition to Practice Program
QSEN Conference - May 31, 2017, Chicago, IL
e National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NCSBN) provides education, service and research through collaborative leadership to promote evidence-based regulatory excellence for patient safety and public protection.
2001 NCSBN Employer’s study: Fewer than 50% of employers report newly licensed nurses are “safe and effective” in their practice.
Replicated in 2003 with similar results.
NCSBN BODs convened a TTP Committee, charged to design an evidence-based TTP model
Reviewed the evidence for a year (2009-2010)Literature reviewGaps in education/practice
Benner (2004)Patient safetyStress linked to errors (Elfering, 2007)Discipline reports (MA BON, 2007; Chicago Tribune, 2000)Missed care (Kalisch, 2006)
TTP Program – n=43 (577 new nurses)Established Program – employ 6 components n=29 (300 new nurses)
Limited Program – employ fewer than 6 components – n=22 (186 new nurses)
Established programs significantly increased:Overall competency
Established programs significantly decreased:
Work stressReports of errorsUse of negative safety practices (did not use universal precautions)TTP in middle; Limited on bottom
TTP vs. Established vs. LimitedTurnover
New Nurses LeavingTTP14.7%Established Programs12.0%Limited Programs24.8%
All three groups significantly improved over the yearlong period
Implication: QSEN is being consistently integrated into the academic curriculum
