Inside scoop from our experts: Nurse involvement and decision-making

HCPro's Weekly Update on the ANCC Magnet Recognition Program®*, August 30, 2010

This week’s question about nurse involvement in decision making comes from a discussion on JourneyTalk. Several members offered excellent suggestions for where to find the appropriate tool or document to track this information.

Q: Would anyone be willing to share a survey tool/document that you have used to assess the nurses’ perception of their level of involvement in decision-making on their units?

A: Suggestions include:

  • The Decisional Involvement Survey (DIS) by Donna Havens, PhD
  • The Professional Nursing Survey Tool from the Forum for Shared Governance

Editor's note: On JourneyTalk you can network with your peers, discuss the new manual, share your helpful tips, and get advice on how to meet the program's expectations. Become a member of JourneyTalk when you subscribe to HCPro's Resource Center for the ANCC Magnet Recognition Program®.
