A consistent approach to the response and reporting of student errors would provide a framework to assist faculty to coach students to safer nursing practice. Implementation of a Just Culture in schools of nursing would create a transparent, blame-free culture to encourage reporting of student errors. The purpose of this scholarly inquiry was to explore nursing school faculty’s perception of their knowledge, experience, and attitudes related to error management on the clinical unit. An educational intervention was provided on the Just Culture model and its application to the handling of student errors. The research question was to determine if the educational intervention had any effect on faculty’s perception related patient safety, error reporting and accountability. The Healthcare Professionals Patient Safety Assessment Curriculum Survey [HPPSACS] was the tool utilized for the scholarly inquiry. Data were collected utilizing the survey instrument pre and post educational intervention. The survey items were divided into 5 constructs: patient safety is a meaningful learning experience, error reporting, accountability, culture of blame versus culture of transparency, and culture of safety on the clinical unit. Comparisons of the responses of the Likert scale items were measured using a paired t-test to test changes in mean scores between the pretest and posttest. A statistically significant level was defined as a P- value < 0.05. The participants in this study have shown to have a positive change in perception of the Just Culture framework related to error reporting and management following an education intervention on Just Culture.
