Shared Governance Structure

The Shared Governance structure is designed to support a philosophy of staff participation in decision-making that provides direct-care professional nurses with the opportunity to participate in decision making and policy formulation which affects their individual practice. It creates an open, collaborative, integrated culture within the department that respects dialogue to resolve issues, equally valuing each member’s expertise and contribution. Below are the councils that support this vision.

Nurse Practice

The Nursing Practice Council implements and maintains standards of clinical nursing practice and patient care consistent with evidence-based practice and requirements of regulatory agencies while monitoring the appropriateness and effectiveness of the care provided, assessing and ensuring compliance with established standards.

Education

The Nursing Education Council provides support for the development and implementation of diversity initiatives within nursing, and works to foster a respectful, culturally appropriate environment for patients, families and staff members. They are also responsible for fostering collaboration between clinical departments and the information services and technology departments.

Nursing Leadership

The Nursing Leadership Council provides a forum for the discussion of specific issues and priorities within the Department of Nursing Services and Patient Care. This inter-disciplinary input helps develop strategy, manage care delivery, and ensure excellent service and quality across all patient care settings.


Advanced Practice

The Advanced Practice Nurse Council provides leadership and direction to all APRN practice. This includes the nurse practitioners, clinical nurse specialists, and certified registered nurse anesthetists. The Council works collaboratively to identify issues important to their patients and develop strategies to address their needs.

Nursing Peer Review

The Nursing Peer Review Council works to improve overall and individual performance while promoting autonomy. They provide a process by which practicing registered nurses systematically access, monitor, and evaluate the quality of nursing care provided by peers as measured against professional standards of practice.

Philosophy: We, The Nurses of Baptist Health, believe nursing is a scientific discipline as well as a compassionate calling. We believe that including patient, family, and community along with the care team helps patients achieve their highest level of self-care.

Nursing Model:In accordance with our faith-based culture, our nursing practice model reflects the symbolism of the Christian cross. The value of Christian compassion encircles our model as well as our daily lives. We believe we have been called to care and our mission is to provide safe, high-quality, compassionate, patient-centered care. The calling is at the center of our practice model and is supported by four encompassing arms: Clinical Excellence, Servant Leadership, Partnerships, and Professional/Personal Development.

"Beloved, I pray that all may go well with you and that you may be in good health, as it goes well with your soul."
