The Clinical Nurse Leader (CNL) is a master-prepared generalist accountable for patient outcomes through application of evidenced-based practice at the microsystem level. Accelerated nursing programs are educating entry level nurses as CNLs in a novel Model C program. This doctoral project evaluates entry-level master’s CNL graduates with the CNL end-of-program competencies to determine whether these graduates are able to have positive effects on patient, systems, and leadership outcomes in clinical settings.
