Abstract

In 2017, A Magnet designated 528-bed tertiary care community hospital underwent significant leadership change. With that, came the opportunity to redefine the Clinical Nurse Specialist (CNS) role within the largest of five hospitals in a two-billion-dollar health care system. Through evidence-based practice, effective leadership, and the vision of a change agent, this is the story of the revitalization of the CNS role.
