This Year’s Theme is the “Resurgence Of The CNS”
RESTON, VA – September 1, 2020 – The National Association of Clinical Nurse Specialists (NACNS) announced its 11th Annual Clinical Nurse Specialist (CNS) Week celebration and released a schedule of its activities today. This year’s CNS Week is scheduled for September 1-7, 2020 and the theme is the “Resurgence of the CNS”. A schedule of events and a “Celebration Tool Kit” can be found here.
“CNS Week recognizes and celebrates the unique expertise and value that the clinical nurse specialist contributes to health care organizations and patients,” said Sean M. Reed, PhD, APRN, ACNS-BC, ACHPN, president, NACNS. “This CNS Week theme, ‘Resurgence of the CNS’, is particularly poignant and appropriate this year as CNSs are playing a leading role in the response to the COVID-19 pandemic in organizations across the country.”
CNS week is an annual event that acknowledges the contributions of the nearly 90,000 CNSs in the United States. CNSs are an elite and unique group of advanced practice registered nurses (APRN) that are the only APRNs qualified to integrate care across the three spheres of influence in health care: patient, nurse, and system. NACNS is the only national organization representing thousands of CNSs and dedicated to advancing the practice and education of CNSs. Watch the #CNSPride Video and hear from CNSs across the country on why they are proud to be a CNS.
