Nursing Peer Review/Nursing Quality and Safety Collaborative

Logo for nursing peer review programThe Nursing Quality and Safety Collaborative (NQSC) assists in meeting requirements for nursing peer review while promoting continuing nursing education. Our program brings together nursing professionals to advance safe nursing practice. Using a multi-institutional approach, the program also promotes patient safety and quality of care.

Using e-technology and telecommunication we conduct quality reviews and, when necessary, facilitate nursing peer or safe harbor reviews consistent with requirements of the Texas Board of Nursing. NQSC utilizes a peer review approach that provides impartial, objective review by nursing peers.

Reports and peer review information are managed confidentially and in compliance with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) regulations.

NQSC provides the following professional development opportunities:

  • Ongoing nursing roundtable webinars
  • Newsletters with information and tools fostering professional growth
  • Quarterly nurse executive roundtables
  • Continuing nursing education

Texas A&M University Rural & Community Health Institute is an approved provider of continuing nursing education by the Texas Nurses Association-Approver, an accredited approver with distinction by the American Nurses Creditialing Center's Commission on Accreditation.
