A clinical nurse specialist (CNS) is a licensed registered nurse that has a Master's or Doctorate degree in nursing.  A clinical nurse specialist is considered an expert clinician in the diagnosis and treatment of illnesses.  Clinical nurse specialists tend to specialize in one area of nursing.  When a clinical nurse specialist's level of care, skill or treatment falls below the standard of care and inflicts serious injury or death to a patient, nursing malpractice may have occurred.  Unfortunately, even the best clinical nurse specialists can commit errors and mistakes that may result in serious injuries or wrongful death.
