The Colorado Center for Nursing Excellence established a formal didactic course in 2005 to deliberately prepare clinical faculty using expert clinical nurses. Independently, the National League for Nursing, in 2018, established criteria for certification for clinical nurse educators. The content of this course content closely mirrors those competencies and provides preparation for the exam. As a result, Clinical Scholars have established themselves as important players in nursing education in Colorado.
