The crosswalks below align the QSEN Competency Statements to the 2021 AACN Essential Statements

  • Prelicensure QSEN Statements: Entry Level Essentials

  • Graduate QSEN Statements: Advanced Level Essentials

 

The intent of this work is to support faculty and practice educators who currently use the QSEN work to transition that work to the 2021 Essentials.  These crosswalks help demonstrate the alignment of the competencies related to teaching strategies, mapping of courses and curriculum, and general understanding of the Essential Domains and Concepts.    

These tools may also be helpful for those not familiar with the abundant QSEN resources.  By starting with an area of the Essentials, a user can determine what QSEN domain/statements best align and then use that information to search online teaching repositories, articles, or textbooks for helpful information and tools to meet the Essential’s competency requirement.
