The clinical nurse leader (CNL) designation is an advanced nursing role that focuses on improving the quality of care and patient outcomes through evidence-based practice. CNLs are responsible for developing and implementing strategies to improve healthcare delivery systems, evaluating the effectiveness of interventions and providing support to other clinicians in their organization. They typically have a Master’s degree in Nursing with additional specialty training in leadership or management.
In terms of direct patient care, CNLs can influence outcomes by providing education about disease processes as well as helping patients navigate complex healthcare systems. An example of how this could be done is through working with communities to develop health promotion programs aimed at reducing chronic conditions such as diabetes or hypertension. They may also be involved in decision making when it comes to selecting treatments or managing medications thus ensuring that all options available meet the needs of each individual patient while keeping safety top priority.
