To avoid unnecessary staffing legislation, nurse leaders are in a key position to guide policy makers. A key strategy to engage their staff can be implementing healthy work environment (HWE) councils that are empowered to make recommendations and decisions to drive policy at the organizational level and potentially across the health care continuum. In this article, the nurse's HWE is defined, the evolution of staffing legislation is reviewed, and an innovative approach regarding the HWE inclusive of nurse staffing is discussed.
