New York, New Jersey See High Demand for CNSs

Given the Institute of Medicine’s “Future of Nursing” report spelling out the essential role of nurse leaders in advancing evidence-based healthcare, clinical nurse specialists increasingly are in high demand, particularly in the critical care setting.

CNSs are key to developing the culture of quality mandated by healthcare reform that will help hospitals meet heightened requirements for reducing infection rates and improving outcomes, nurse leaders say.

The CNS role attracts nurses who love research and like to teach outside an academic environment. Their expertise is extremely specialized, they educate clinical staff, patients and families, and they help build staff satisfaction in their roles as mentors.

In New Jersey, where master’s degree nursing programs are heavily focused on nurse practitioners, CNSs are sometimes hard to find when openings arise.

Master’s programs for CNSs also were disappearing in New York, says Kimberly Glassman, RN, Phd, NEA-BC, senior vice president of patient care services and CNO at NYU Langone Medical Center in Manhattan. But now, she says, universities are responding to renewed demand for these positions, and within the past few years have started to add the CNS master’s programs back in.
