Hi, I do not know if this is the correct place to post, so if it is not, please move this thread:
I was speaking with a recruiter at a nursing conference, who informed me that a particular school was getting rid of the MSN-CNL degree and focusing on providing an MSN. The MSN is no longer focused. For example, the degree reads Masters of Science in Nursing rather than Masters of Science in Nursing and Clinical Nurse Leadership. So, my queston is does any one know of Universities getting rid of the MSN-CNL? If so, do you know why?
My uninformed guess is that it is related to hiring practices of Masters prepared RNs. Plus, the fact that CNL is a generalist certification. Thus, employers can hire any MSN or Non-MSN (RNs with other Masters) for the same roles.
