The Clinical Nurse Leader (CNL)

Intended for students who have already earned a baccalaureate or higher degree in a field other than nursing, the Clinical Nurse Leader option prepares graduates to provide direct patient care and clinical nursing leadership in hospitals, the community, long-term care facilities, the home, and other settings. The American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN) developed the CNL role in collaboration with nurse leaders in academic and health care settings.
