Clinical Nurse Leader Capstone

The courses for the Clinical Nurse Leader (CNL) masters program involve collaborative Health Care Improvement projects in the students’ communities. The student first collaborates with the nursing and interdisciplinary team to identify an important issue for a patient population, and then the CNL capstone involves the development, implementation and evaluation of an improvement project for this patient population in collaboration with the community partners.
