Be a Leader in Your Profession
Clinical Nurse Leaders® use direct patient interaction as well as data to make decisions about care—so you can become a nursing leader without leaving your patients behind. Recognition of the value of this role is growing: the Department of Veterans Affairs plans to employ CNLs at all points of care in all of its medical facilities by 20161.
You’ll deepen your practice and take an important step toward more autonomy, greater responsibility and more fulfillment. Registered nurses with graduate degrees earn an average of $20,000 more than RNs without them and report the highest rates of feeling “extremely satisfied” at work2. In addition, as educational expectations for nurses continue to rise, those who have an MSN may be better positioned for advancement and employment over those who don’t.
Take on new challenges and help your patients receive the best nursing care possible through Queens’ online Master of Science in Nursing with a CNL track. Call us at 866-313-2356 to speak with one of our admissions advisors, or learn more about the rewards of working as a Clinical Nurse Leader.
