The clinical nurse leader is a advanced nurse generalist with education at the master’s degree level. The clinical nurse leader role was proposed by the American association of college of nursing (AACN) to improve quality of patient care and to prepare nurses with competencies needed to thrive in the current and future health care system.  Hence, the clinical nurse leader must bring nursing leadership needed at the point of care to ensure high quality safe nursing care. Comprehensive knowledge of the patient and case management skills, allows the clinical nurse leader to facilitate improved clinical outcomes and patient satisfaction.
