Nursing Councils

Nursing councils give our nurses a voice


An opportunity to influence decisions and make recommendations that affect nursing practice, the delivery of care and their work environment.

Our nurses participate in interdisciplinary and nursing councils, where they share their ideas and partner with other council members to develop and implement specific project plans. Nursing Ideas Submission is another platform giving nurses the chance to communicate their ideas and suggestions to the Coordinating Council through the Nursing page on the HackensackUMC Intranet. This ensures that our nurses are being heard as they seek new innovations, improvements and transparency. Our shared decision-making council structure is at the heart of it all.
