The Clinical Nurse Leader (CNL) prepares registered nurses to provide evidence-based care that is cost effective and improves patient safety and clinical outcomes. The CNL assumes accountability for patient-care outcomes through the assimilation and application of evidence-based information to design, implement, and evaluate patient-care processes and models of care delivery. The CNL is an advanced generalist who works collaboratively with interdisciplinary teams, patients, and staff to provide patient-centered care. Graduates of this concentration are prepared for eligibility to apply for the Clinical Nurse Leader Certification Exam prepared by the Commission on Nurse Certification (CNC).
