Course Details


Shared governance practices give nurses more input and influence over their jobs and how the organization makes decisions that affect them. Every nurse brings their own wisdom, expertise and experience that are not leveraged enough if not tapped in to. Shared governance models ensure that every nurse has a voice. Especially as nursing fatigue rates rise, employers struggle to retain nurses, and nursing performance has a more direct impact on the financial bottom line of hospitals. The shared governance model is essential to ensuring that nurses are empowered to have as much influence over their work environment as possible.

This pre-recorded webinar will educate nurses and nurse leaders on how to establish and maintain shared governance processes. Included in this is a focus on communication, staff development, mentorship, strategic planning and goal setting, including best practices from other organizations implementing shared governance models.


Key Learning Outcomes:

  • Translate strategies used to engage staff in shared decision making.
  • Describe best leadership practices in creating and promoting an environment for nurse-driven governance.
