As a Clinical Nurse Leader, you will function as part of an interdisciplinary team that communicates, plans and implements care directly with other healthcare professionals.
The CNL is a master's prepared generalist, accountable for clinical and healthcare environmental outcomes. You will function at the microsystem level; oversee care coordination of a distinct group of patients; serve as a resource for clinical decision making and also as a lateral integrator of care.
The CNL puts evidence-based practice into action, collects and evaluates patient outcomes, assesses cohort risk, and has the decision-making authority to change care plans when necessary.
The master's degree program in nursing at The University of Alabama is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education. (http://www.ccneaccreditation.org).
