The Clinical Nurse Specialist (CNS) is an advanced practice
nurse (APN), who demonstrates advanced cognitive and psychomotor
capabilities in the assessment, treatment and evaluation of human
responses to actual and potential health problems. The CNS
functions autonomously and in collaboration with other healthcare
providers as a practitioner, educator, consultant, clinical leader
and researcher. The CNS relies on his / her advanced education and
applies advanced knowledge to analyze, interpret and make
inferences from facts and circumstances that vary from case to
case. The CNS operates independently and works directly with
clinical department leaders on the nursing units where there is no
direct supervision. The work of a CNS is intellectual in nature and
is reflective of their advanced, specialized academic training and
education. The consistent exercise of a high degree of discretion
and independent judgment is required.
The CNS is primarily responsible for: development, execution,
evaluation and ongoing supervision of individual and project action
plans in order to improve patient care outcomes; create policies
and procedures; conduct independent assessment of patients and
their current treatment plans; collaborate on plan of care with
physicians, nursing leadership and clinical staff; assess
education/training needs and develop and present programs
specially-tailored to meet the needs of a multidisciplinary
clinical staff; analyze complex clinical data and recommend
instructional programs to close the gap in institutional clinical
knowledge; independently plan, organize and execute special
projects and complete projects assigned by CNO or designee;
exercise authority and/or may effectively recommend personnel
actions, such as hiring, transfers, corrective action, and
participating in job performance evaluations.
