Excellent point about the QSEN’s aim to create “change.” Revising the way we do things to reflect the most recent best practices inevitably comes with resistance. Change is tough for clients and nurses! I came across an article that specifically suggests there be more research around enduring change. The authors suggest that frontline nursing leaders influence practice improvements (Ieiszer, Semenic, Ritchie, Richer, & Denis, 2016). Interventions such as teamwork and accountability contributed to successful implementation of best practices. Yet the research showed that initiatives “evaporated” over time. Exactly how to improve longer-term sustainability is a current focus of attention. It appears that enduring “change” needs to be managed regularly to ensure best practices.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
