hello! I've done a lot of research on the CNL role, on allnurses and on the web but I still have a couple questions. I've seen a lot of posts about a direct-entry CNL for non-nurses but I want to get some feedback from RN's who go back to school to get their CNL. I know the CNL is a "general bedside masters prepared nurse" but what does that actually look like on the floor? If you are on a tele floor with 30 patients, are you in charge of overseeing all 30? If something goes wrong with the patient, what are you doing vs. what the bedside nurse does?
