Throughout this course we will focus on Nursing Excellence. While we may all consider ourselves excellent nurses, we may not understand what our profession considers ‘Nursing Excellence’ and why it is important to the sustainability of nursing. What is Nursing Excellence? It is important to think about excellence from a variety of perspectives that have an impact on nursing education, practice, and research. Staying current with such matters as healthcare insurance, health disparities, population health care needs, economic realities, changing technologies, and viewpoints of multiple stakeholders is important for the delivery of quality care. There are multiple stakeholders; health care organizations included. Throughout the next several weeks we will be discussing the 1OM, the Joint Commission, the World Health Organization, the NLN, the AACN and OSEN. There are others; however, for the purpose of this course we will focus on the organizations just mentioned.
The Institute of Medicine is a non-profit, independent organization, that began in 1970 to advise health care providers when developing policy. The mission of the IOM is to improve health by providing unbiased, evidence based, and reliable information. IOM’s mission also includes giving advice concerning health and science policy to policy makers, professionals, and leaders. The IOM has published reports that have provided a variety of evidence based information since there inception: To Err is Human, Crossing the Quality Chasm, Unequal Treatment: Confronting Racial and Ethnic, Disparities in Health Care, Keeping Patients Safe: Transforming the Work Environment for Nurses and Future Emergency Care, to mention a few. Through the reports published, the IOM has also developed learning strategies related to nursing education. Particularly, a Systematic Review of Standards (SRS). Part of your Indirect Clinical Project will include the SRS steps. Click on Learning Strategies for information related to learning about the IOM
The Joint Commission I am sure, by now, you have
all heard of and have participated in The Joint Commission accreditation
process. The commission, like the IOM is a non-profit organization; however, it is “interfaced’ with the government. Their partnerships include several governmental agencies and Congress, to assist in
legislation involving the quality and safety of healthcare. The mission of the Joint Commission is to assist in improving health care through evaluation of health care organizations and motivating them to excel in practice. This evaluation is based on an organization’s level of performance in key functional areas, such as patient rights patient treatment, medication safety and infection control. The objectives of the survey are not only to evaluate the organization’s successful adherence to the standards, but it provides educational and “good practice” guidance that will assist organization with opportunities to continually improve them to excel in practice. This evaluation is based on an organization’s level of performance in key functional areas, such as patient rights, patient treatment, medication safety and infection control.
The objectives of the survey are not only to evaluate the organization’s successful adherence to the standards, but it provides educational and “good practice” guidance that will assist organization with opportunities to continually improve. In addition to accreditation, the joint commission awards certifications for the following disease-specific care: chronic kidney disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, comprehensive stroke centers, heart failure, inpatient diabetes, palliative care, and primary stroke centers.

World Health Organization
Have you ever heard of, or celebrated, World Health Day? April 7 is World Health Day, celebration of the initiation of
the World Health Organization. This constitution was issued in 1948 to define their role in world health. Today WHO’s role can be defined as: providing leadership on world health matters, shaping research agendas, setting standards and promoting and monitoring their implementation, presenting ethical and evidence-based policy options and providing support to sustain institutional capability; and monitoring the health
and providing support to sustain institutional capability; and monitoring the health situation and assessing world-wide health trends.
National League of Nursing- Founded in 1893, the NLN offers faculty development programs, networking, certification exams, nursing grants, and public policy initiatives. This organization supports and promotes excellence in nursing education, encourages diversity in the nursing work force, and has members from a global community,
Including Cameroon, Canada, Guam, India, Japan, Korea, Kuwait, Holland, the Philippines, Saudi Arabia, Scotland, Singapore, the United Kingdom. The mission of the NLN is quided by four core values; caring, integrity, diversity and excellence.
Like the AACN, the NLN has developed goals and objectives to support their mission and activities. The goals and objectives can be found at the NLN website.
The American Association of Colleges of Nursing, otherwise known as AACN, is a national organization that is dedicated to nursing education. Similar to the Joint Commission, it provides accreditation.
However, the accreditation is for schools of nursing. Without the AACN
accreditation there can be a lack of quality education and lack of public support. The AAC has listed three goals with supporting objectives in
their strategic goals. The goals are: to provide strategic leadership, provide faculty development opportunities, and to leverage AACN’s policy on behalf of the profession. The AACN also has specific
Federal policy agendas and Grassroots
Specifically, look for the 535 Project: Congressional Connection. Is the AACN advocating for nurses in your state?
What is the relevance to your practice? Is QSEN linked to the IOM, TJC, WHO, NLN, and AACN? Let’s find out.
QSEN-The Quality and Safety Education for Nurses (OSEN) project began in 2005. Initiated by the University of North Carolina, and funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the project had four phases between 2005 and 2012. The overall goal of the project is to address preparing nurses with the knowledge, skills, and attitudes (KSAs)
necessary to continuously In improve the quality and safety of the healthcare systems.

practice, patient-centered care, advocacy and nursing education; Nursing Excellence! Were you able to see the organizations support of nursing education, practice, and research? Will the organizations help you stay
