La Roche College now offers a Clinical Nurse Leader (CNL) concentration to prepare master’s degree students for advanced practice roles in all health care delivery settings.
Offered as part of La Roche’s online MSN program, the concentration provides the skills that students need to manage and coordinate comprehensive client care. Students will fulfill 42 credits online, along with 400 mandated hours of practicum in a health care setting. Upon successful completion of the program, students will be eligible to sit for the CNL Certification Exam offered by the Commission on Nurse Certification.
“The Clinical Nurse Leader program offers an advanced degree for nurses who want to stay practice-focused and contribute to the clinical leadership role,” Terri Liberto, Ph.D., RN, chair of the La Roche Nursing Department, said.
