Two School of Nursing alumni will speak about their experiences as Clinical Nurse Leaders (CNLs) during a webinar hosted by the Commission on Nurse Certification (CNC).

Luis A. Rosario-McCabe and Deborah Hurley, graduates of the School of Nursing’s CNL and DNP programs, will share their perspective on the CNL role at 2 p.m. Monday, March 19 to help celebrate Certified CNL Day.

Watch the webinar from your computer or join CNL Program Specialty Director Tobie Olsan, PhD, RN, CNL, FNAP, in 4W301 at Helen Wood Hall to view the webinar with other CNLs, including those supportive or interested in the role. All are welcome.

More about our CNL program

The CNL program at the School of Nursing was the first program of its kind in New York state when it was established more than 10 years ago. Program graduates have a 100% pass rate for the CNL certification exam. And, for students interested in pursuing a DNP degree there is a seamless articulation between the two programs.

Webinar participants will:

  • learn about positive outcomes that certified CNLs have made in transforming health care and nursing education
  • understand the importance of advocating for the CNL skill set
  • explain the value of achieving the CNL designation
  • discuss how the CNL skill set transcends various work environments
