Abstract

The authors describe a 6-month pilot project incorporating a modified version of the American Association of Colleges of Nursing's (AACN) clinical nurse leader (CNL) role as a prelude to implementation of the AACN-defined CNL role. The purpose of the project was to evaluate a new nursing care delivery model on a designated nursing unit, incorporating the modified CNL role. The pilot was evaluated using nurse-sensitive indicators. Results showed positive trends for all indicators.
