Different roles for CNS's??? Come on guys share what you do! - page 12

Good evening everyone! Those of us that are CNS's have a great variety of roles/jobs and I am curious just what everyone else does. I graduated in May with a post-MSN adult CNS. Currently, I work in... Read More

    I am Medical surgical nurse with master degree in Iran (if you may call this as CNS). notwithstanding I have a master degree, my current role is faculty member and educating the nursing student in hospital and nursing schools. actually master nurses in Iran do not have any role in the practice unless they employ as a practice nurse not as an educators.
    when I read the comments of all CNS, I really sad in my heart about such a greate responsibity that they have. I hope that, nursing in Iran got change in future.

    After graduation, I kept the part-time emergency staff nurse job, a position that I had for the last 10 years, and this past June, I added a part-time hospice/palliative care NP job (love it!). Last Friday, I put the 2-wk notice in for the staff nurse job, and I am going to be picking up more time with my NP job. The company is great. I told them that I did not want to abandon emergency nursing, that I would like to pick up enough time to get insurance through them, and then I would like to do some part-time emergency NP work. They totally understood and were supportive. As long as I put in at least 30 hours of hospice/palliative time, then I get my insurance/benefits, and they are good with me working in the emergency department. I did, by the way, secure an emergency NP job a couple of weeks ago. I am going through the dreaded credentialing process. It is a wonder that there are any NPs with what one has to do in order to get credentialed (wish me luck!).

    I do not check out the discussion boards like I used, so I apologize for the delay.

    I have a question for CNSs in non-traditional CNS roles (e.g. APRN/mid-level provider). How was your first working experience in this role? Did you also explain to your employer what other roles CNSs can do? (e.g. education, research).

    So, I read this thread hoping I would get more clarification but I think I am way more confused as to what the role of a CNS (and the potential marketability)is/isn't. I'm still in nursing school, with previous oncology research background. I'm fairly certain that I will eventually want to go on into some advanced practice role just not sure what.

    @Keylime - you might want to read the NCSBN Consensus Model to get a better idea of what individual APRN roles do.

    The roles are very tricky and so it is important that before you enroll in an APRN course of study, you have a solid idea of where you would like to end up.
