Shared Leadership Council
At Cedars-Sinai, we’ve elevated our Shared Leadership structure to ensure that nurses at all levels have a voice. Each month for a full day, clinical nurses and formal nurse leaders come together to discuss important issues that impact their clinical practice and the work environment.
