There are five, non-negotiable principles for successful shared governance. Is your facility implementing them?
Shared governance is vital to staff satisfaction and retention because it gives nurses a voice and allows them to share in decisions about their practice. Although overwhelming evidence shows the benefits of building and maintaining a shared governance process, many facilities still struggle with developing resources, gaining support, and implementing techniques to mature a model. And if your organization is pursuing or maintaining ANCC Magnet Recognition Program® status, you are expected to have a successful shared decision-making model in place.
Build and evolve your shared governance model
