Nursing

Shared Governance

nursing imageWe believe:

  • Nursing makes a valuable, unique contribution to patient care and plays an integral role in maintaining and sustaining our culture of caring and discovery.
  • Essential to the provision of quality care is the design and delivery of professional, scholarly nursing services that are integrated and aligned with inter-professional practice structures.
  • Decision making is enhanced by the collective wisdom acquired through dialogue and discourse of diverse representation (representing all domains of nursing practice, education, research, informatics, administrative/management) of council members.

Guided by these values, we adopt a shared governance approach to nursing professional practice implemented through the establishment of the Nursing Advisory Council (NAC).
