Shared Governance

In February of 2007, BSSF Nursing implemented a shared governance program in order to involve more direct care nurses in decision-making regarding professional practice, research, quality and patient safety, and professional advancement. Representatives from unit-based councils participate on hospital-wide councils, which in turn report their discussions and recommendations to the Leadership Advisory Council.

These councils are interdisciplinary and very active, tackling such issues as nursing theory and delivery of care models, evidence-based practice and process improvements, quality and patient safety, nursing research projects, specialty certification and RN turnover rates, and recognition of our nurses’ achievements.
