Why join the NI Clinical Alliance?

The NI Clinical Alliance provides the Clinical Transition Framework (CTF), a clinical pathway for professional nurse orientation, development, and competency validation that serves as a national and international model for nursing professional development. The NI Clinical Alliance provides shared ownership of evidence-based CTF tools, while continuing the development of evidence-based resources. The tools and framework shared within the NI Clinical Alliance membership develops direct care providers within a nurturing, collaborative, safe, and productive clinical environment. Shared CTF resources include complete models for both preceptor and clinical competency development, as well as, access to excellent didactic resources for academic faculty.
