NACNS is interested in developing long-standing, supportive relationships within the health care industry to support the health and wellness of patients.

Because of their graduate-level education and training, clinical nurse specialists are uniquely prepared to assess, analyze and improve the business of health care while continuing to put the patient first. Regardless of specialty or setting, CNSs provide leadership in clinical expertise, nursing practice and systems innovation.

“The rare combination of leadership, passion for teaching, and clinical expertise is what makes CNSs such a valuable resource. There is no way that any significant change in patient care could move forward without them. They not only serve as teachers for their fellow nurses, but also for the physicians who are lucky enough to work with them.”
