Online Master of Science in Nursing

Lynchburg College's online Master of Science in Nursing Program is founded on evidence-based nursing practice and provides educational experiences that are grounded in current knowledge and research.

Program: Clinical Nurse Leader

The clinical nurse leader (CNL) is a leader in the healthcare delivery system in all settings, providing and managing care at the point of care to individuals and cohorts of patients. The CNL  is not part of administration or management but 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.
