When looking at how to resolve this issue, the nurse must first bring it to the attention of leadership. Attending and talking about the problem during nursing shared governance meetings is an excellent way to get the attention of the Chief Nursing Officer (CNO) of the organization. Gaining his or her support in addressing other leadership is very helpful and vital. When looking at the purpose of nursing shared governance, in the article entitled, Nurse Engagement in Shared Governance and Patient and Nurse Outcomes, the authors found that the earliest definition was that “front-line staff nurses held positions onorganizational committees with the power to influence institutional policies and decisionsthat had implications for patient care” (Kutney-Lee, Germack, Hatfield, Kelly, Maguire, Dierkes, Del Guidice, & Aiken, 2016, p. 605). During the meeting, the solution can be discussed among the nurses. This can serve two purposes since the nurses attending will perform the intervention or practice, the author of the proposal can receive valuable feedback for possible changes before actually going to committee. Then he or she will have support with implementing the solution or intervention once approved. Also, the CNO can ensure that the nurse who has the proposal for a answer to a solution be placed on the committee reviewing and given the time to attend so that he or she can address anyquestions reducing the amount of time to approval.Reference:Kutney-Lee, A., Germack, H., Hatfield, L., Kelly, S., Maguire, P., Dierkes, A., Del Guidice, M. & Aiken, L.H.
