Closing the Gap: Study Highlights Shortfalls in Preparing and Rewarding Front-Line Nurse Managers for Quality Improvement

Achieving the triple aim in U.S. health care—better population outcomes, better patient experience of care, and lower per capita costs—won’t happen without engaging nurses, the nation’s largest group of health care providers, in quality improvement (QI) efforts. Front-line nurse managers (FLNMs) are ideally positioned and expected to lead such efforts, but gaps in their QI education and participation prevent them from realizing their full potential for doing so, according to a study published in the Journal of Nursing Administration.
