1. Whats a good completely online program to get into for CNS or CNL?
I completing my Psychiatric/Mental Health CNS program at Point Loma Nazarene University in San Diego. It's not an online program but it certainly is worth looking in to. I competed my classroom work and clinical in about 28 months. My thesis will be done at the end of October/2011. (I'm just finishing my thesis as I type this)
2. What type of jobs are out there?
It depends on the CNS specialty you are looking for. For me, it was psychiatry and mental health. There are many jobs if you want to move from some of the larger metro areas to smaller cities and communities.
3. Whats the salary range?
Again, that depends on your specialty, location, and experience.
4. What are the duties of the job?
If you log onto the NACNS (National Association of Clinical Nurse Specialists at nacns.com they can answer most or if not all of your questions regarding duties of a clinical nurse specialist.
Hope this helps and good luck finding a school that suits your learning needs.
