Journal of Nursing & Interprofessional Leadership in Quality & Safety (JoNILQS) is an open-access, peer-reviewed online journal focusing on practical quality improvement initiatives that have the potential to improve patient outcomes over a broad spectrum of healthcare settings. Its target audience and contributors include nurses, physicians and other healthcare professionals, researchers, and administrators concerned with improving healthcare outcomes.

Published in spring and fall, the journal was launched in fall of 2016. The first issue highlights quality improvement and safety projects initiated by Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) graduates for their DNP capstone projects. Subsequent issues will address specific areas of practice improvement, including administrative, clinical, and healthcare-related initiatives.

The JoNILQS editors are faculty members at The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston’s School of Nursing. JoNILQS is co-published by The TMC Library.
