SMU School of Nursing Honored with QSEN Award

The School of Nursing and Samuel Merritt University received a Quality and Safety Education for Nurses (QSEN) award Thursday, June 13, 2013 at a regional meeting held at the Moore Foundation Headquarters in San Jose.

The award is for “Commitment to Quality and Safety Education for Nurses,” and is presented by the American Association of Colleges of Nursing QSEN Education Consortium. 

Director of Assessment Valerie Landau was asked to present her Curriculum Mapping Initiative (CMI) at the regional meeting, and explained how QSEN has been integrated into it.

"Valerie's presentation was a big success," says Arlene Sargent, Associate Dean of Nursing. "In addition, during the team’s visit to the School of Nursing in April, they were extremely pleased with how the School of Nursing has integrated the QSEN standards into the clinical evaluations and course assignments."
