CNL Certificate Program

The Clinical Nurse Leader (CNL) Certificate Program allows students who already hold a master’s degree in nursing to complete the necessary requirements for CNL certification and practice.  The 12-credit certificate program consists of the five CNL specialty courses in the master’s CNL emphasis.  There are increasing demands to improve quality, safety, and patient outcomes across healthcare settings.  Clinical Nurse Leaders are advanced generalists, academically and experimentally prepared to provide leadership in managing the care environment and improving clinical outcomes.
