Abstract:
Concurrent Podium Presentation: Nurses are empowered by a management style that encourages and values the clinical nurse's input and feedback at all levels of the organization. In a small community hospital participative management is demonstrated through the activities of the Nurse Practice Council which works to move the strategic plan of the organization forward. This presentation will discuss the charter and creation of the Nurse Practice Council, membership and voting rights. The role of the Council in connecting the clinical nurse with leadership forums will be explained using completed and ongoing initiatives. A profile of Unit Based Practice Committee representatives who sit on the Nurse Practice Council will be described. Examples of issues brought to the Nurse Practice Council and solutions deliberated and implemented will be provided such as safety initiatives, nurse recruitment and retention, quality and performance improvement projects, National Nurses Day Celebrations, selection of Nurse of the Year and standardized nursing documentation. The importance of the Nurse Practice Council as the driving force in enhancing a Magnet culture and the role of the Council in setting the stage by preparing the organization for the Magnet site visit will be highlighted.
