The CNS Role at Mission Health

Nurses at Mission Health in western North Carolina now have another avenue to move into advanced practice. With the continued focus on our BIG(GER) Aim, the need for more advanced practice Clinical Nurse Specialists (CNS) has become apparent. The CNS collaborates and consults in the management of complex patient and family care across the continuum of care for acute and/or chronic health conditions.

Two Mission Health nurses who are passionate about their CNS roles are Jeanie Bollinger, MSN, RN, ACCNS-AG, CCRN-CSC, Sepsis CNS, Mission Hospital and Andie Slivinski, MS, RN, ACNS-BC, CEN, Emergency Services CNS, Mission Health.
