Copyright © 2015 Wolters Kluwer Health, Inc. The Clinical Nurse Leader (CNL) initiative has been characterized by innovation. While an innovation framework for diffusing CNLpractice remains relevant, generalizable evidence of effectiveness is necessary to sustain nationwide momentum. A framework is proposed in this department for a national-level CNLresearch collaborative linking research, policy, education, and practice stakeholders in an ongoing partnership to advance CNL evidence, education, policy, and practice.
