Clinical Nurse Leader

The clinical nurse leader is a leader  and expert clinician who  assumes accountability for client care outcomes through the use of research-based information to design, implement, and evaluate client plans of care.

Designed for part-time study to be completed over the course of three years, this program is comprised of 40 credit hours, and will prepare students for the certification exam for clinical nurse leaders.
