Inside the program: Putting a committee structure in place

HCPro's Weekly Update on the ANCC Magnet Recognition Program®*, December 8, 2009

Based on the literature and practice environments focused on shared governance and a decentralized management model, the following committee structure can be used as a model for committees that should be in place and functioning for at least a year prior to applying for ANCC Magnet Recognition Program® (MRP) designation:

  • Nursing practice council
  • Nursing quality council
  • Nursing education council
  • Nursing research council
  • Nursing recruitment and retention council
  • Nursing leadership council


In addition to participating in nursing committees, staff nurses should be active members of interdisciplinary hospital committees.
