MSU begins Clinical Nurse Leader graduate option.
MSU received funding from the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) for the CNL program. A graduate student attending MSU can complete all required coursework in one academic year (3 semesters-fall, spring & summer) or longer if the student prefers to attend part time. Courses are taught using distance learning technologies (WebCT) using the Internet with minimal real-time meetings. Students accepted into the first cohort began taking core classes fall semester with the family nurse practitioner (FNP) and clinical nurse specialist (CNS) students. They will begin CNL specific clinical courses spring semester and full time students will complete a clinical immersion experience in the summer. Clinical rotations, supervised by a faculty-preceptor dyad, are completed in the student's home community whenever possible.
Nurses interested in learning more about the CNL option are encouraged to visit the College of Nursing website at http://www.montana.edu/nursing/ academic/mn.htm or contact Ms. Lynn Taylor, the graduate program Administrative Assistant at lynnt@ montana.edu or (406) 994-3500. Applications for admission for fall 2008 are due February 15, 2008.
