Abstract

Overview: Blending a shared governance model with the concept of evidence-based practice (EBP) creates a dynamic situation for both nurses and hospitals: staff nurses are directly involved in improving the care they provide while growing in their practice and becoming more invested in their institution. Shared governance enables staff nurses to assume leadership roles in identifying areas for change and driving the change through an EBP process, while nursing leaders provide the tools and maintain an environment that will allow such a process to take place.
