QSEN Newsletter: July 2022

Thank you so much for participating in 2022 QSEN International Forum.

We hope you all had an unforgettable, good time. I would like to announce the successful end to the 2022 QSEN International Forum: Aligning the New AACN Essentials and QSEN: The Future of Quality and Safety Competencies in Nursing Education and Practice.

This year’s QSEN International Forum was unique and included access to the content through mobile access. Despite the enormous challenges from the pandemic, the conference was successful and attendance exceeded our expectations. We are very proud of the commitment and efforts that went into making this conference possible.

We would like to thank everyone who contributed to this year’s conference. We wish you the best and please be safe and healthy.

AACN Essentials and QSEN Competency Crosswalks The 2022 QSEN Conference in Denver Colorado included two workshops on the AACN Essentials and QSEN Competency Crosswalks. The intent of the QSEN-AACN Crosswalks is to support faculty and practice educators who currently use the QSEN competencies to transition the QSEN work to the 2021 AACN Essentials. Educators can use the Crosswalks to facilitate the mapping of courses and curricula and the use of QSEN teaching strategies. Find the Prelicensure and Graduate Crosswalk tools at


Assessment of Competency-Based Education Conference attendees were inspired and enlightened by the presentations from medical colleagues and competency-based education experts, Dr. Robert Englander and Dr. Eric Holmboe who highlighted the Entrustable Professional Acts and the importance of learner engagement in competency assessment. Conference attendees can revisit the presentations using a link sent in a separate email.
