Collaborative Governance Councils
Membership in the Evidence-Based Nurse Practice Council is open to all NSMC clinical staff nurses. This council is chaired by a clinical staff nurse and promotes professional development of all clinical staff nurses. The council meets monthly to lead, facilitate, and inspire excellence in patient outcomes through evidence-based nursing practice. Recently, the council championed a very successful “Glucose Monitoring Project” and is currently working on the “Alarm Fatigue Project".
