The Clinical Nurse Leader project marks the first time in 35 years that nursing has introduced a new role to the profession. The project has evolved to include partnerships between more than 90 universities and 190 clinical sites. The authors present a case study of how a for-profit medical center created a sense of urgency for change, built a business case, and redesigned professional nursing practice to implement the Clinical Nurse Leader role.
