Sorry y’all, here is the description:

This position develops and implements programs to enhance the overall skills of associates that provide bedside nursing care to the patient. The Clinical Resource Nurse works very closely with interdisciplinary teams to identify areas for improvement in patient care. The overall goal of the CRN is to facilitate the development of nursing staff that render care at the bedside.

I did this for a few years and it was, honestly, the best job ever. All of the fun of a Clinical Nurse Educator (supporting staff at the bedside) and none of the added responsibility. It was a great role.

I did it a few years ago (it had a different job title, but the job decription is word for word exact!) I was the catch all the had the responsibilities of CNE + I could get pulled to bedside if needed for staffing, and was also added to the on call mix...I quit within 4 months.  Ask specific questions if you interview so that you don't get burned

Absolutely agree- ask questions! I worked with a great staff, manager and CNE and didn't have any issues. I can see how, given the right circumstances, it would become a "catch all" job (and, to a certain extent, at times it was for me. I would take an assignment if we were short multiple nurses, or fill in as charge PRN. This probably happened approx. once per month, and usually I was filling in as charge).

For me, it also ended up being a great position to put on my resume. It was a leadership role, and it really helped me to advance my career.
