CNS Communiqué


Have you completed the CNS Census yet?  Don’t delay!  Also, help us recruit by sharing the word with your CNS colleagues.

NACNS successfully opened its biennial CNS Census on June 1, 2018.  This online survey is designed to be completed by anyone who is educated as a CNS.  This is the 3rd in a series of biannual surveys that asks key questions: In what settings do clinical nurse specialists (CNSs) work?  In what specialties do they provide care?  Are most CNSs authorized to prescribe medication and/or medical equipment?  What are the demographic characteristics of those in the field?

The CNS Census is the only source of workforce data specific to the CNS role.

Those who complete the survey will be entered into a drawing to win an Amazon Alexa, donated by Springer Publishing Company, LLC or one of two certificates for a free webinar from the NACNS 2018-2019 webinar series.  (NACNS staff and Board members are not eligible for the drawing.)

Don’t miss this important opportunity to help us learn more about you and the CNS role.  The survey is scheduled to close on December 31, 2018 and takes an average of less than 10 minutes to complete.
