What education level is required to be a CNL?
You will need at least a MSN with a concentration in Clinical Nurse Leadership or a similar program. This is because a CNL needs to be a resource for their nursing team, and the MSN assures that a nurse is clinically competent to do that. There are also Post-Master’s Certificate programs that will prepare any nurse already carrying an MSN degree for the CNL exam.
