Registered nurses providing direct patient care to children and their families at Children’s Minnesota are members of the Minnesota Nurses Association (MNA). Our nurses are active stewards of responsible nursing practice, using their skills and expertise to establish and guard standards of care.
The Nursing Care Delivery Committee
Much of this work at Children’s takes place within the Nursing Care Delivery Committee, which has joint representation from nursing management and MNA nurses. The committee is based on the premise that nurses at Children’s have accountability, authority and responsibility for their individual practice. For example, the Care Delivery Committee works on:
- Systems for the delivery of nursing care
- Data on patient outcomes related to nursing care
- Patient acuity systems based on patient needs and appropriate nursing interventions
