PFS Receives Award to Support Modernization of the Department of Veterans Affairs’ Nurse Qualification Standards

WASHINGTON, DC – The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Veterans Health Administration (VHA) Office of Nursing Services (ONS) awarded Titan Alpha a contract to provide training, implementation, communication, and change management support for modernizing VHA’s Nurse Qualifications Standards. This award follows Titan Alpha’s prior support for VHA’s medical workforce initiatives, including Nursing Qualifications Standards Modernization.

VA is the primary employer of nursing personnel in the United States with more than 113,000 nurses. These nurses provide health care across a continuum of services for acute and chronic conditions in hospital, ambulatory, and skilled nursing settings. VA nurses share tools, evidence-based best practices, and lessons learned, and engage in emergency management and disaster preparedness. They are also involved in nursing communities, advocating for informed nursing practices so VA can constantly improve care for Veterans, caregivers, and families.

The Titan Alpha team, along with its partner rockITdata, a certified Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business (SDVOSB) and Woman Owned Small Business, will support ONS, the Workforce Management and Consulting Office (WMC) and other VHA leaders in implementing VA’s comprehensive plan to modernize nurse qualification standards and performance management processes for registered nurses (RNs) and advanced practice registered nurses (APRNs). Titan Alpha will help to ensure that nursing standards incorporate the latest in the field of nursing and use technology to enhance Veteran care.

“Many VA nurses view their work as an opportunity to serve their country. In turn, we look forward to continuing to serve them,” said Kamran Sartaj, PFS Vice President of the Organizational Change and Learning. “Working as VA’s partner, we will help ensure its nurses are well-prepared to meet the health care needs of our nation’s Veterans. We support VA in delivering exceptional care across the board.”
