Abstract

Background: Nursing leaders have proposed that nurses must have the Quality and Safety Education for Nurses (QSEN) competencies to work in complex health care systems. Using the QSEN framework, this study explored what characteristics perinatal nurse managers desired most in new nurses. Methods: This study used a survey design and a convenience sample of perinatal nurse managers working in Indiana hospitals (N = 46). Results: Managers were more likely to hire nurses with experience, positive references, and excellent attendance. Of the QSEN competencies, managers looked most for teamwork and collaboration, followed by safety and patient-centered care. Conclusion: In addition to the traditional qualities desired in new nurses, the QSEN competencies are gaining importance among perinatal managers.
