Abstract:
Paper Presentation: In January 2004, three academic medical centers instituted a single Nursing Council structure. This work was chartered by the Chief Nurse and merged separate clinical practice and nursing committees creating a Collaborative Governance model. Frameworks that strengthen collaboration and advance clinical practice are essential. Nurse leaders play critical roles as facilitators and mentors, and are the cornerstone of the Collaborative Governance model. The Council's purpose is to identify priorities for clinical practice and operational policy, integrate work of nursing committees within the three organizations, assure a single standard of care, monitor ongoing projects, and serve as a vehicle for decision making, learning and information sharing amongst nursing staff. The council is charged with assuring that nurses, nurse practitioners, nurse scientists, educators and leaders at all levels of practice share authority, responsibility and accountability for patient care. Goals are achieved through work delegated to the Council's eight committees. Committees identify priorities, outcome measures and timelines for achieving goals. Formal reporting occurs in writing with progress reviewed at council meetings monthly or quarterly and to the Nurse Executive Board. Nursing Council members are surveyed twice yearly for feedback about the effectiveness of the structure. The feedback is discussed in the aggregate and action plans developed to address areas needing improvement. Strengths of the structure have been its ability to bring nurses together for a common purpose, eliminating duplicative efforts and coordinating priorities. This cohesive professional nursing structure transcends the walls of the separate institutions and fosters an environment of shared governance.
