The Canadian Association of Schools of Nursing (CASN), in partnership with the Canadian Patient Safety Institute, is pleased to announce the development of Learning Outcomes for Patient Safety in Undergraduate Nursing Curricula. These learning outcomes, intended for graduates of baccalaureate programs of nursing, simultaneously reflect the CPSI Interprofessional Safety Competencies and the guiding principles of the CASN National Education Framework.
This project is the result of an initiative that took place from 2017-2018. The work was guided by a committed advisory committee of nurse educators, practicing nurses, and representatives from CPSI and CASN.
The learning outcomes, organized under six domains, are intended to increase integration of patient safety competencies into undergraduate nursing curricula. It is the hope of CASN, CPSI and the Advisory Committee that these learning outcomes will be a valuable resource for nursing faculty across Canada!
