Clinical Nurse Leader

The Clinical Nurse Leader emphasis is for nurses who want to remain in staff nursing positions and enhance their skills with advanced knowledge and education.

Our 37-hour online program:

  • Provides advanced training for generalist nurses who will continue to give expert bedside care in health care facilities
  • Educates advanced nurses who will provide care management to patients on a unit-based level
  • Develops a knowledge base for nurses to implement outcomes-based practice and quality improvement strategies
  • Enables nurses to create and manage microsystems of care that will be responsive to the health care needs of individuals and families

The next cohort will begin in the fall of 2015.
