Clinical Nurse Leader (CNL)

Otterbein is not accepting applications for the CNL program at this time.

Transformational Leaders

The CNL major is a innovative master's degree that prepares the student to achieve positive patient outcomes directly at the bedside.

This major has a total of 30 credit hours with an immersion quarter comprised of 400 clinical hours. The clinical immersion allows the student to work closely with nursing faculty and institutional partners to develop skills such as transformational leadership, change management, conflict resolution and integration of evidence-based practice.

During the immersion process, the graduate student will assimilate theory into practice by completing a project in conjunction with the institutional partner. Projects will positively enhance health care delivery and prepare the graduate nurse for leadership positions within a unit or specialty group practice.
