What is a Clinical Nurse Leader?

A Clinical Nurse Leader is a new designation for a Master of Science in Nursing graduate-a Clinical Nurse Specialist-who specializes in maintaining the quality and safety of patient services. The development of this specialty is the result of a campaign initiated by the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN), which is the authoritative professional body for all types of nursing education in this country.

The history of this new specialization begins in 1999 with the release of a report by the Institute of Medicine on the significant shortfall in patient safety measures and patient safety training in the medical profession. That report coupled with declining enrollments in baccalaureate nursing programs led the AACN to initiate a task force effort aimed at producing an analysis of what changes might be needed in nursing education.
