QSEN Speakers Bureau

QSEN Speakers are available to schools and organizations throughout the country who wish to hire experts who can facilitate planning for the implementation of the graduate-level QSEN competencies. These QSEN Speakers conducted the five graduate-level QSEN faculty development workshops in 2013-2014. The workshops were based on the Graduate-Level QSEN Competencies: Knowledge, Skills and Attitudes which was posted on the AACN website on September 24, 2012.
