The clinical nurse leader track prepares an advanced generalist that will remain at the point of care. The CNL role affords the nurse who enjoys bedside nursing a career path and the opportunity to develop additional leadership skills. The innovative curriculum prepares nurses to function as leaders and change agents within health care microsystems. Graduates from the CNL track will fill a growing gap in health care organizations. CNLs act as clinicians, patient advocates, team leaders, information managers, systems analyst/risk anticipators, outcomes managers, educators, and lifelong learners. This track requires 400 clinical hours.
