Rated 5 Stars by Doody's Review Service 
"....very thorough in the descriptions of areas for the clinical nurse leader role. The healthcare industry often does not know how to incorporate this role and the authors do an excellent job of spelling out various opportunities." Cynthia L Cummings, EdD, RN, CHSE (University of North Florida Brooks College of Health)

Initiating and Sustaining the Clinical Nurse Leader Role, Third Edition illustrates the influence of clinical nurse leaders on care coordination, health promotion, and high-performance inter-professional care teams. The Third Edition will move beyond the 2007 American Association of Colleges of Nursing CNL White Paper and incorporate the CNL Competencies introduced in October 2013. This text presents a bold agenda for CNL practice, one that promotes value in the transformation of clinical care redesign. 

The Third Edition will cover the following:

•    Moving beyond the triple aim toward the quadruple aim
•    Increased emphasis on a new healthcare environment where CNLs practice
•    The clinical value compass for improving care
•    Care transitions and the CNL
•    Health policy engagement and advocacy
•    Population health and management
•    Inter-professional collaboration
•    Resource mindfulness
•    Project management tools, scope, design, and evaluation
•    Incorporating the 5Ps and models for improvement
•    Exemplars of CNL impacts across care settings
•    CNL certification, professional membership, and residency programs value
•    Vision for CNLs in 2020
