In order to build a strong foundation for a successful nursing career, nursing students need to develop competencies in teamwork and collaboration, communication, leadership, quality improvement, and safety. The recently published Role Development in Professional Nursing Practice, Fourth Edition by Kathleen Masters maintains a focus on professional role socialization and integrates the Nurse of the Future (NOF): Nurse Core Competency model throughout. Also examined are issues within the context of the Quality and Safety Education for Nurses (QSEN) competencies.
