Role of Pediatric Clinical Nurse Specialists

What Does a Clinical Nurse Specialist Do?

The Clinical Nurse Specialist is an expert clinician and critical component in the delivery of high quality health care in the hospital setting.

The CNS is a Master's prepared nurse who has transitioned or is in the process of transitioning from the role of RN. As part of the leadership team, the CNS with extensive RN experience will work alongside nurses at the bedside to teach and identify process concerns and educational needs, as well as maintain their own skills.           

In addition to their role of educator, the CNS is responsible for leadership development, research, consulting for other services and institutions, and, of course, clinical practice. They practice in many specialty areas including pediatrics, acute/critical care, adult health, geriatrics, oncology, acute/surgical care and community health to name a few. Their goal is to enhance the delivery of health care within their unit, and their success is defined by the success of their nurses as well as patient outcomes.
