Clinical Nurse Specialist

Clinical nurse specialist is the title given to the advanced registered nurses who specialize in a nursing practice within one of several specialty areas. The CRNs integrate their advanced knowledge of disease processes in assessing, diagnosing, and treating patient illnesses, but their role extends beyond providing patient care, their role also includes providing quality and safety in the healthcare system. If you are a natural person that cares for others, have a knack for complex problem solving, the ability to teach others, have effective communication skill and can take on a leadership role, then the clinical nurse specialist role could be the right career for you. One of the most beneficial things about being a clinical nurse specialist is the ability to work in a specialized area of healthcare such as geriatrics, pediatrics and psychiatric nursing.
