Nursing Shared Governance

We believe all levels of nurses – chief nursing officer, managers, supervisors, educators and direct care – hold the authority, accountability and professional responsibility to govern their practice. That is why we’ve created the first Shared Governance structure in 2008, and have continued to function very well with our Shared Governance model since.

The structure we’ve built incorporates a network of leadership councils and unit based councils that facilitate the nurses’ ability to govern nursing practice at Bozeman Health. Our Shared Governance structure was formalized by adopting organization-tailored by-laws. Currently, our councils are functioning under our by-laws to effectively promote autonomous practice governance.
