Clinical Nursing consists of nurses who are advanced practice registered nurses in the area of clinical expertise (pediatrics, geriatrics, women’s health, diabetes, oncology, psychiatric, rehabilitation, critical care and emergency room), holding a master’s or doctoral degree. Clinical nurse specialists may also work with research—translating research findings into patient care, evaluating research proposals, overseeing design of evidence-based practice studies, applying research results to practice, or coming up with new evidence-based standards and protocols. They work in supervisory roles and in administrative positions, and provide consulting services in their organization, while others work to improve health care systems. Apart from these, they work in management positions and may also develop or work with a team to develop policies and procedures.
