  • Abstract

    The purpose of this study was to describe what newly licensed registered nurses working in hospitals learned about quality improvement in their education programs and workplaces. The survey was administered to nurses working in a hospital who participated in the second wave of the Newly Licensed RN Survey: Newly Licensed Registered Nurse Survey, 2007 (ICPSR 36812). Quality improvement topics covered by the survey include patient-centered care; evidence-based practice; standardized practices for restrain and seclusion, infection control and pain management; use of information technology or strategies to reduce reliance on memory; participation in analyzing errors and designing system improvements; use of national patient safety resources, initiatives or regulations; and use of specific quality improvement models, specifically, FADE (Focus, Analyze, Develop, Execute, and Evaluate), PDSA (Plan, Do, Study, Act), Six-Sigma-DMAIC/DMADV (Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, Control) or (Define, Measure, Analyze, Design, Verify), CQI (Continuous Quality Improvement) and TQM (Total Quality Management).
