According to Katrin Junghanns-Royack, RN, director of The intensive care/telemetry unit, “the Unit-based Council of ICU and Telemetry, founded in June 2016, is based on the model of shared governance that gives nurses and certified nurse assistants a voice in nursing practices and patient care using evidence-based practice. Both managers and staff participate in making decisions.”

Howell was also recognized for developing a residency program for new graduate nurses in ICU/telemetry in addition to her regular duties of caring for patients, performing the role of charge nurse and assisting with chart audits.
