Program Overview

The Clinical Nurse Leader Program (CNL) prepares nurses to be clinical leaders with the skills to thrive in the current and future health care system while striving to improve client outcomes and reduce health care costs. The program is a second-degree, accelerated nursing program integrating didactic and clinical instruction for individuals with a baccalaureate or higher degree in a non-nursing field. Students are prepared for the registered nurse licensure examination and graduate with a Master of Science in Nursing degree. The CNL is a generalist (not an advanced-practice nurse) with nursing knowledge, comprehension of the infrastructure of the health care system, clinical decision-making skills, resource management strategies and the ability to manage complex information. The CNL program has partnered with several healthcare institutions to support the program’s educational efforts and provide possible career opportunities following graduation. The program and partnerships will enhance the role development of the CNL through the engagement of highly skilled clinicians, outcomes-based practice and quality improvement strategies while providing high-quality patient care in the surrounding communities throughout Georgia.
