Beth Quigley, MSN, RN, CRNP
Beth Hogan Quigley loves being a nurse and nurse practitioner and has never doubted her career choice for a moment! Dr. Quigley has worked clinically and administratively with a variety of units at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, including those in the medical, surgical, and peri-operative departments. Most recently, she partnered with the health system on the utilization of continuous video monitoring and virtual sitters to prevent falls and fall injuries in hospitalized patients.
Dr. Quigley has taught in almost every clinical course at the undergraduate level and has mentored thousands of students, leaving an indelible impression upon many. Her focus on patient assessment, quality patient care and safety are central to her practice and teaching.
“Make a difference and take time to believe in a student to help them believe in themselves. It makes my heart swell to see the trajectory from the beginning of the program until graduation and beyond.”

Dr. Quigley found that the use of continuous video monitoring (CVM) using virtual sitters decreased falls by 14% and fall injuries by 6% in hospitalized patients in her DNP work. There was also a significant cost savings of $97,000.00. Unforeseen benefits include additional nursing assistants on the unit providing hands on care to patients rather than in 1:1 observation. The hospital continues to use and expand the use of continuous video monitoring.
Dr. Quigley received the Quality and Safety Education for Nurse (QSEN) Christa Koffel Inspiring Leader Award for her work with CVM. She is presenting her work in a variety of venues including the QSEN International Forum. Dr. Quigley also received a research grant from Sigma Theta Tau, Xi chapter for her novel approach to patient safety and monitoring.
Dr. Quigley teaches one of the most difficult courses in all of Penn: Integrated Anatomy, Physiology, and Physical Examination, parts 1 and 2. The course, which she co-teaches and participated in developing, was one of the first in the nation to integrate nursing science with clinical and laboratory work. It’s the introduction to hands-on patient care for students, who take part 1 in the spring semester of their freshman year and part 2 in the fall of their sophomore year.
Dr. Quigley is the co-author of Bates Nursing Guide to Physical Examination and History Taking, which is used at Penn Nursing, and throughout the nation. To help students make the transition from classroom to clinical practice, Penn Nursing began offering interactive components with the book through Course Point and PrepU. Course Point includes quizzes and tests used in Integrated Anatomy, Physiology, and Physical Examination. PrepU lets students prepare for, and practice taking, the National Council of State Boards of Nursing’s NCLEX-RN exam.
