Shared Governance

Navicent Health utilizes the professional practice model of shared governance to deliver high-quality nursing care. Shared governance is a working model in which our bedside nurses make decisions related to practice standards, quality improvement and professional development. Our nurses utilize evidence-based practice, new innovations and current professional nursing standards as a foundation for our transformational leadership from the bedside.

Navicent Nursing believes that excellence in nursing care starts at the bedside. Our nurses are our most important patient advocate. They are empowered to provide ideas, innovations, knowledge and recommendations that promote our commitment to quality care. Our councils collaborate and consult across our continuum to reach the best results to successfully provide excellence in care and outcomes.

Current groups include:

  • Nursing Advisory Council
  • Nursing Operations Council
  • Nursing Practice and Quality Council
  • Nursing Professional Development Council
  • Nursing Recognition and Engagement Council
  • Nursing Research Council
  • Unit Councils
