    Operationalize the role of the Clinical Nurse Leader (CNL) in the intensive care unit (ICU) through implementation of the Clinical Nurse Partner (CNP).

    Improve patient outcomes in the ICU by decreasing healthcare acquired conditions.

    Provide additional resource for bedside clinicians for consultation. Provide assistance to the multi-disciplinary team in navigating through

    systems issues. Ensure consistency of care in the ICU by assisting in the coordination of care,

    communication among providers regarding institutional policies, and implementation of evidence-based practice through education at the point of care.


    Clinical Microsystem

    Definition: The administrative team chose to call this role a Clinical Nurse Partner (CNP) versus a Clinical Nurse Leader (CNL) to maintain professional integrity because the team envisioned the role to be filled by staff nurses who currently work in the microsystem. At the time this role was proposed, none of the staff members had completed a formal CNL education program. Additionally, this role was a pilot project and continuation was contingent on the successful implementation and evaluation of the CNP. The CNP was modeled after the assumptions, roles, and competencies outlined in the American Association of Colleges of Nursing CNL White Paper.


    Eight-hour shifts, five days a week (40 hours a week divided among three nurses)

    Daily rounding on at least 16 of the 32 patients in the ICU New admissions and patients with the highest acuity seen first Those with high risk therapy or procedures prioritized (i.e. CRRT) Each patients orders reviewed and any discrepancies addressed CNP conducts an assessment at each bedside and delivers

    education, conducts intervention(s), or assists with resolving systems issues if needed

    Clinical focus every two weeks for staff education

    Design, Implementa/on, and Evalua/on of the Clinical Nurse Leader in the Intensive Care Unit The Clinical Nurse Partner:

    Assessment conducted. Business plan proposed to ICU administration team. Project timeline established. Manager approved and made edits. Frequency of staff meetings (non-productive hours) reduced to make way for the CNP role. ICU Manager proposed this plan as a quality improvement and pilot project to Associate Chief Nursing Officer. Project approved.

    Role introduced to unit leadership team and staff during monthly meeting. Job posting announced to ICU employees. Three staff nurses hired into role. Meetings conducted with administrative team and clinical nurse specialist to define the role of the CNP. CNP implemented in the unit. A unit champion was identified.

    The admin team, champion, and CNS were available to the CNPs for consultation with clinical issues, hospital policy clarification, and any other needs. Informal weekly touch-base meetings conducted by the unit champion. Additionally, a formal meeting with administrative team was scheduled every eight weeks. Unit outcomes tracked per protocol.

    Evaluation at the following phases of the implementation time line (three, six, and nine months from implementation date) to assess the effectiveness of the intervention, determine clinical focus, discuss barriers, evaluate quality data and strategize on the next intervention(s) moving forward.
