Clinical nurses are members of shared governance councils and teams at the system, hospital, divisional and unit level.

  • Nursing care units have a minimum of one formal council that is comprised of at least 20% of clinical staff.
  • All nursing staff has a voice in shared governance through council representatives and the communication tree, staff meetings, and unit learning/idea boards.
  • At the hospital level, Professional Nurse Council has oversight for coordination, evaluation, and continuous improvement of shared governance activities and nursing practice.
