OO - Organizational Overview

OO15: A table of the interdisciplinary committees and task forces at the organizational level, a description of each one’s purpose, and guidelines for decision-making.

Jersey City Medical Centers’ nurses have the opportunity to be part of interdisciplinary committees and task forces. These committees and task forces provide a forum in which decision-making is encouraged. Nurses, as members, in these forums assume leadership positions, which assists in making changes in their practice as well as contributing to the organization as a whole. See Interdisciplinary Task Force/Committees Table in Reference OO15-A.
