Innovative Clinical Nurse Leader and Clinical Nurse Leader-Nurse Educator Options

The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Nursing is pleased to announce the offering of an innovative, 32 credit Clinical Nurse Leader (CNL) option in the master’s program. The CNL curriculum prepares nurses as advanced nursing generalists with a master’s of science in nursing degree. This program prepares nurses to provide and manage care across all settings in which health care is delivered. CNL students may also take an additional 6 course credits to be prepared as a Nurse Educator. This extended program of study is 38 course credits. Baccalaureate prepared nurses may complete the CNL or CNL/Nurse Educator options across 4 OR 5 academic semesters. At least 75% of the curriculum is available through distance learning formats.
