Abstract:
Purpose: The purpose of this presentation is to share with colleagues the creative options available to clinical nurse specialist educators and practitioners who wish to develop skills and knowledge as an entrepreneur. The MSN program faculty at Wesley College offers this role option to the CNS student and to the CNS planning for an entrepreneur endeavor. Significance: It is imperative that the clinical nurse specialist remain in the mainstream of advanced practice as the profession moves through this century. As a nurse entrepreneur, the CNS has widespread opportunities to establish credibility, create change, and make a difference in the lives of both sick and well clients. Educational experiences as those described in the presentation will enable the CNS to successfully embrace this role with knowledge and skills. Background/Design: The MSN at Wesley College is 10 years old and is unique in that it is an RN to MSN mobility model preparing a CNS in Community Health Promotion and Wellness. Out of this unique specialty came the opportunity to enhance the standard curricula with entrepreneurial course content. This focus, coupled with the community health promotion specialty led to exciting clinical practice options for those students who wanted more practice independence and did not want to practice in an agency setting. Methods: The MSN curriculum design was enhanced to add those course options that would enable the student to learn the principles of entrepreneurship and that provided clinical experiences with those already recognized as entrepreneurs. Findings: Clinical nurse specialist graduates of the Wesley program choosing the entrepreneur option have been successfully practicing in that role. Increased numbers in this option is leading to the establishment of a Center for Nurse Entrepreneurship. Conclusions: The clinical nurse specialist entrepreneur is a viable practice role in this century and the CNS entrepreneur can make a significant impact on the health and wellness of the community. Implications for Practice: Providing this option in established MSN programs that prepare clinical nurse specialists can be accomplished if experienced nurse faculty, familiar with entrepreneur concepts, are available. The option can be extended to CNSs in practice as a continuing education offering.
