Shared Governance at South Nassau Communities Hospital

Providing exceptional patient care requires the touch of many caring hands. Shared Governance is an organized structural model of empowerment for shared decision-making between staff and management. It recognizes the expertise of nursing staff and gives nurses a voice in decision making related to nursing practice. Hallmarks of this involvement are staff participation in decision making, recognition of staff contributions, partnerships between staff and leadership, collegiality, autonomy, professional development, a spirit of innovation, trust, mutual respect and open communication.

Our Council structures at South Nassau are built on the premise of teams coming together to create and implement actions that move us toward our vision to empower nursing staff to practice innovatively, influence exceptional patient outcomes, learn continuously and create an environment where nurses choose to work and patients want to receive care. They are the foundation for a commitment to shared vision and collaborative practice.
