The Clinical Nurse Specialist Institute (CNSI) is pleased to announce the 38 clinical nurse specialists selected as the inaugural class of fellows for the CNSI. In 2016, the CNSI was founded as an arm of NACNS to develop and promote the charitable, educational, innovative clinical practice, and scientific purposes of the National Association of Clinical Nurse Specialists. The establishment of the Fellows of the CNSI is an important strategy in meeting this mission.


Upon induction, these individuals may use the credential "FCNS." Each individual has the opportunity to select induction at either the 2019 or 2020 NACNS Annual Conference Fellowship Induction Dinner, although they can only use the credential once they have been officially inducted. This year's induction will happen on March 8, 2019, at the Renaissance Orlando at SeaWorld.
