    Abstract

    The need to address patient safety issues from a systems perspective is receiving increasing attention and action in Canada's health-care system. In contrast, patient safety is a relatively new concept within nursing education. Understanding the impact of nursing education systems on patient safety entails "looking within" and reviewing how existing program structures and processes (e.g., curriculum; sequencing of courses; formal and collective feedback from clinical instructors; clinical practice models; and frequency of, and pass rates on, math calculation tests) may be fostering or undermining patient safety. Further, it requires "looking between" the education and practice sectors to understand their impact on patient safety. Achieving this perspective necessitates that the sectors cooperate, engage in dialogue, and share data (Gregory, Guse, Davidson Dick, Davis, & Russell, 2008).
