Clinical Nurse Leader (CNL)
The Clinical Nurse Leader (CNL) is a Master’s prepared advanced generalist role that was incorporated into our professional practice model beginning in 2006. MMC was instrumental at the national level with the American Association of Colleges of Nursing to champion and implement this program and the role through partnerships between Academic and Practice leaders in Nursing.
Since the first and successive cohorts entered practice at MMC, they have demonstrated a comprehensive understanding of how to drive complex change in alignment with a value based focus that elevates the safety and quality of care while reducing costs. This leaning has been shared with hospitals and other students throughout the country.
