Nursing committees

  • Nursing Title, Appointment and Credentialing Committee

    The Nursing Title, Appointment and Credentialing Committee (NTAC) forms part of the clinical governance framework of the hospital. NTAC was established in 2013 and meets fortnightly. NTAC membership includes nursing directors, human resource partners and representatives from nursing management, clinical practice, education and research.

    The objectives of NTACC are to ensure effective processes for:

    • approving and standardising role titles, classification, re-classification, credential and scope of practice for all nursing positions, except Enrolled Nurses, Registered Nurses, Clinical Nurse Specialists and Grade 1-2 Research Nurses;
    • appropriate recruitment and interview;
    • notification of successful candidates so that communication and orientation processes can be kept current.

    NTACC reports quarterly to the RCH Executive.

    For all queries and submission in relation to NTACC, please email

    Nursing Clinical Effectiveness Committee

    The Nursing Clinical Effectiveness Committee (NCEC) was established in late 2010 with a priority to establish a clear and consistent pathway to support the development of evidence based clinical guidelines for nursing practice across the organisation. All clinical areas across The RCH have nursing representation on the NCEC which meets on the first Thursday of each month.

    The NCEC reports through to The RCH Quality and Safety Committee.

    A number of documents and templates have been authorised by the NCEC to support the development of Nursing Clinical Guidelines, to access these, visit the nursing guideline index

    If you have any questions related to the development of Nursing Clinical Guidelines or the Nursing Clinical Effectiveness Committee, please contact Nursing Research for more information.
