NursingNews3QRT-UnitCouncilPremier Nursing Shared Governance is celebrating 18 months and continues to evolve. One of the newest and exciting developments is the partnership with the Versant Residency program. Versant subcommittees will be integrated in the Premier Shared Governance councils beginning in August as a means for strengthening partnerships with the Versant residents, streamlining communication, and increase participation at each facility. The enhanced Shared Governance model looks like this:

Versant committee members will be joining the councils as a standing agenda item on a quarterly basis. 

  • Structural Empowerment: includes Versant Competency & Organizational Development Subcommittee members Amy Clayton, Liz Kempfer and Angela Mathis
  • Transformational Leadership: includes program managers Kim Barton and Maria Cosler 
  • Exemplary Professional Practice: includes Outcomes subcommittee member Kim Barton 
  • New Knowledge, Innovations, & Improvements: includes Versant Resident PI projects
