  1. Altmiller, Gerry EdD, MSN, RN


Quality and Safety Education for Nurses came about through a grant from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. Its mission has been to transform nursing education by deliberately changing the focus of nursing's professional identity. The purpose of this article is to discuss the recent adaptation of the Quality and Safety Education for Nurses knowledge, skills, and attitudes, originally developed for undergraduate education, into competencies for advanced practice nursing education. This article discusses the applicability of those competencies for graduate education as it applies to the spheres of influence in the clinical nurse specialist role and the implications for preceptors.
