Abstract

In this article, we discuss Shared Governance as the foundation of our nursing professional practice model. Through the use of case examples and reflections from our management team, we demonstrate how this accountability-based practice model promotes excellence through developing, connecting, and engaging people, clarifying and communicating goals, using data to make decisions, and even shaping our organizational response to a critical incident. We close with a look to our future as our hospital embraces whole-system shared decision making.
