Clinical Nurse Leader

New Career. Fresh Start. Become a Nurse.

Seton Hall University's Clinical Nurse Leader (CNL) entry-level master's program is designed exclusively for those with a non-nursing baccalaureate degree who wish to fast-track into the nursing profession by earning a Master of Science in Nursing. Students are eligible for R.N. licensure after graduation, and our most recent class achieved a 100% pass rate on the NCLEX (National Council for Licensure Examination). An ideal way to begin your new nursing career, the program is the first and only entry-level CNL program in New Jersey.

A New Start in Just Two Years

The 80-credit CNL program includes eight clinical role development courses that provide students with the theoretical grounding and clinical experience needed to improve the quality of care in a variety of settings. The final semester consists of a capstone project at one of our partnering healthcare organizations, during which you put into practice the skills you have learned. Rigorous yet fulfilling, the program can be completed in two years.
