Abstract:
Not every nurse can be a member of the shared governance council. However, every nurse can have an active voice in hospital affairs. An initiative to increase nurse engagement in shared decision-making was executed by the staff nurse Nursing Coordinating Council Chair and the Nurse Executive of a Magnet Designated Community Hospital. The Nursing Highlights meeting was one tactic created to engage nurses from all areas and celebrate their contribution to the Nursing Strategic Plan. The monthly Nursing Highlights agenda included staff presentation on their units performance improvement projects, administrative updates, and an open forum for dialog. The second tactic was to create a biannual Area Coordinating Council Chair meeting. The purpose of the first meeting was to orient the Chairs to their role and help them to understand how they are a vital communication link for their unit and their performance is an essential component in collectively achieving the site goals. The second meeting was held to receive feedback on progress toward unit or site goals and provide assistance when barriers were identified. As a result of this initiative, the site scored above the Magnet mean or median on nurse participation in hospital affairs, nursing foundations for quality care, and nurse manager ability, leadership, and support of nurses. The dyad of the Nursing Coordinating Council Chair and Nurse Executive were successful in mentoring nurses in the process of shared decision making and developing a practice environment where all opinions were valued and respected.
