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.
