according to the CNL role competencies established by AACN.4 Documents include examples of com- plex patient care interventions and outcomes, error reduction strategies based on systematic assessment, demonstration of interprofessional collaboration, and systematic microsystem improvement. A professional resume with cover letter to potential employer; a personal mission, vision, and values statement; and earned certificates, such as continuing education, are usually included in the portfolio (Table 1).

For the role systems analyst/risk anticipator, students include a de-identified Microsystem Assess- ment in their portfolio to demonstrate QSEN and CNL competencies related to systematic microsys- tem improvement. At the start of the clinical immer- sion, CNLs complete a comprehensive assessment of an aspect of the healthcare system. Examples include assessment of nursing practices and protocols; per- formance of an environmental safety or safety cul- ture assessment; microsystem profile that analyzes

the system’s purpose, patients, employees, processes, and patterns; microsystem core and supporting pro- cesses inventory to determine staff’s perception and rank order; and those processes that need improve- ment. Other criteria include discharge process cycle time to measure the time from the patient being dis- charged until the patient has left the unit, interdisci- plinary team observation, care transition maps to diagnose the quality of patient care transitions be- tween both healthcare practitioners and settings as care needs dictate, and medication administration interruption analysis that analyzes patterns of inter- ruptions, waits, and delays in the process of safe med- ication administration.
