My Goals And Goals Of The Clinical Nurse Leader

Good Essays

I want to become a nurse, because it will allow me to fully care for others, while presenting me with a variety of leadership opportunities that will further develop me as a compassionate leader. The Clinical Nurse Leader (CNL) program will assist me in achieving my short-term goal of becoming a CNL for an Obstetrician/Gynecology (OB/GYN) unit, which enables my long-term goal of opening a non-profit women’s health clinic in my hometown of Syracuse, New York.

With these qualifications and experiences, I have a long-term goal of opening a non-profit women’s health clinic in my hometown.
