The expanding role of the clinical coordinator

Abstract

This article describes the role of the clinical coordinator in nurse anesthesia educational programs, a role which has greatly expanded as programs shift to university-based frameworks with multiple clinical sites. The role of the clinical coordinator has become vital in the success of schools of nurse anesthesia based in the university/college setting. The significance and functional responsibilities of this role need to be broadened by making the clinical coordinator a university appointed representative. The expanded role provides for university representation at each site, improves the lines of communication between the university and each site, and allows for regular visits to each clinical site. Hopefully program directors, faculty members, and students will benefit from this innovative attempt at bridging the gap between the university and the associated clinical facilities. Regional coordinators also play a vital role in coordinating student functions between various institutions and the clinical coordinators in each of these institutions, as well as representing the university/school of nurse anesthesia interest and needs in these settings.
