The basic principles and structures of shared governance were defined in the early 1980s. Since that time, shared governance has become the predominant structural model for organizations that guide the professional practice of nursing. As the profession has matured, subsequent models of professional practice and the Magnet Recognition Program have validated its viability for advancing nursing practice and patient care. As a result, nursing ‘shared’ governance has matured into nursing ‘professional ‘ governance.

Leadership in nursing professional governance operates in a significantly different manner than in traditional hierarchical organizational systems. True professionals operate within the context of a practice community that is unique to the accountability of the profession and the social expectations for its practitioners. Professionals in practice have ownership over their practice. This implies authority for making decisions related to that practice that operates in partnership with the management authority extended by the organization/institution.

There have been suggestions that nursing professional governance must give way to more controlling and unilateral decision making models and processes in the presence of crisis (COVID-19). In a number of different systems and situations across the country, nursing professional governance has either been abandoned or modified to facilitate critical decision-making. However, the evidence indicates that it is precisely in critical events that the value and power of nursing professional governance demonstrates its significance.
