Clinical Nurse Leaders Are Making an Impact on the Future of Health Care
To keep abreast of ongoing technological innovation, medical breakthroughs, and advancements in health care, today’s nursing professionals are encouraged to pursue advanced degrees. With the growing demand for further education comes an increased demand for new roles–roles that impact patients at all levels and incorporate leadership skills to facilitate positive change. The Clinical Nurse Leader role does just that. Developed by the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN), the Clinical Nurse Leader role emerged after several years of research and discussion as a way to engage highly skilled clinicians in outcome-based practices and quality improvement strategies.
