Responsibilities

The Clinical Nurse Leader (CNL) is a Registered Nurse with a Master's degree in Nursing from a university with a specialized CNL program. The competencies unique to CNL practice are clinical leadership, care environment management, and clinical outcomes management. The CNL enacts these competencies at the clinical microsystem defined as functional front-line unit that such as hospital unit, outpatient clinic, or home health setting, or unit level to influence care delivery processes and dynamics. The CNL works with healthcare team members and leaders to coordinate care, manage resources, and compile and evaluate data with a focus on quality, patient safety, and outcomes. The CNL role was developed to seamlessly align with WellStar's Nursing Professional Practice Model, and is based in part on the American Association of Colleges of Nursing's Competencies and Curricular Expectations for Clinical Nurse Leader Education and Practice (2013), and an empirically validated conceptual model for CNL practice (Bender et al. 2016).

The CNL partners with patients, staff and providers. The CNL collaborates with nursing leadership to focus on the patient, at the point of care as a subject matter expert. To support this effort, he/she must maintain clinical knowledge. It is expected CNLs are RNs, CNL certified, clinically knowledgeable, uphold the practice of nursing as outlined by the Georgia Professional Nurse Practice Act, and implement the Scope of Practice and Code of Ethics Standards put forth by the American Nurses Association. As a member of the healthcare team, it is expected the CNL upholds the voice of the patient and WellStar's policies and procedures while supporting service excellence goals.
