Nursing Students and CNSs Invited to Take NACNS 2016 Census

The NACNS 2016 CNS Census is seeking information on how nurses with CNS education and experience are contributing to the health care system.

The National Association of Clinical Nurse Specialists (NACNS) CNS Census is a survey that allows NACNS to collect crucial data on the demographics, education and practice of clinical nurse specialists, an important Advanced Practice Registered Nurse segment of the nursing profession. 

The results will be published and NACNS plans to make an infographic available on their website -

The survey is open to all nurses who identify themselves as, or who were educated as Clinical Nurse Specialists (CNSs). If you are a student, you are welcome to take the CNS Census. NACNS is encouraging all nurses who meet those criteria to complete the survey before December 31 of this year.
