<p style="margin: 0px;"><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;"><span style="font-family: 'Arial',sans-serif; font-size: 10pt;">The Clinical Nurse Specialist (CNS) has a unique APRN role to integrate care across the continuum and <span style="font-family: 'Arial',sans-serif; font-size: 10pt;">through three spheres of influence: patient, nurse, system. The three spheres are overlapping and interrelated but each sphere possesses a distinctive focus. In each of the spheres of influence, the primary goal of the CNS is continuous improvement of patient outcomes and nursing care. Key elements of CNS practice are to create environments through mentoring and system changes that empower nurses to develop caring, evidence-based practices to alleviate patient distress, facilitate ethical decision-making, and respond to diversity. The CNS is responsible and accountable for diagnosis and treatment of health/illness states, disease management, health promotion, and prevention of illness and risk behaviors among individuals, families, groups and communities (APRN Joint Dialogue Group Report, July 7, 2008).</span></span></span></p>
