Professional Nursing Staff

Rush University Medical Center
Illinois, USA
At the core of nursing at Rush University Medical Center is the philosophy that nurses participate in decision-making pertaining to nursing practice, standards, and quality of care. In 1983, under the leadership of Luther Christman, PhD, RN, FAAN, Rush became one of the first organizations to have nursing shared governance. At that time, the innovation of nurses sharing decision-making with administrators was an exemplar for the profession. Traditionally, Rush nursing is an innovator in patient care and professional advancement, and Professional Nursing Staff (PNS) plays a significant role in solidifying these reputations. Rush nurses are respected and expected to vocalize their concerns to shape the nursing practice.    The purpose of PNS is to promote excellence in professional performance among the nursing staff, provide high-quality and cost-effective nursing care for patients, establish and monitor standards of clinical practice, and improve its members’  professional life.
