This comprehensive guide to the theory and practice of clinical specialization discusses in depth each clinical specialist's role in a variety of settings, while giving particular attention to the skills necessary to perform each role. The history of the clinical nurse specialist (CNS) is short, but the need is great in today's health care delivery system. This book covers the several roles played by the CNS, as expert clinician, teacher, consultant and researcher. Topics covered include historical perspectives, development of the role, marketing yourself as a CNS, possibilities and predictions. Numerous case studies show the CNS at work.
