Give an example of how the CNL influences direct patient care whether in a hospital or out in the community.DQ2Identify advocacy strategies that you can use to create change in your current workplace.Peer discussion 1To obtain your CNL you first must have your master’s in nursing and then take a certification exam hosted by the AACN. Currently what is happening in the career field of nursing is that there is a mixed reception with the CNL position. This is primarily do because there is a lack of understanding of how to transfer the role and its purpose into practice. Stated in an article by Heather Monaghan (2011) states, “CNLs provide education to all the different professional groups they work with as they integrate evidence-based practice and change at the point of care”. So, while in the hospital it is their job and role to help organize a plan of care. They delegate and work along since clinical nurse educators as well as staff nurses to help adjust based on evidence-based practice to patient care. In their Transforming Practice, Transforming Care™ model for the clinician at the point of care, Monaghan and Swihart identified six elements of the CNL role, all of which are inter-related and need to be mastered: Leadership and change, Interdisciplinary relationship, Knowledge transfer, Outcomes management, Clinician at the point of care, and Professional development. Based on these roles CNLs work with a cohort of patients to help provide care, even though it may not be directly hands on care while in the hospital setting. Whether it be in the hospital or in the community CNLs are a co-coordinator of care and will use these strategies as well as their knowledge and access to the latest evidence-based practice to influence patient care outcomes.
