SG Measurement

Measuring Governance

The Index of Professional Nursing Governance (IPNG) measures nursing governance in healthcare organizations, and the Index of Professional Governance (IPG) measures governance among all healthcare professionals. During the last 20 years, more than 250 healthcare organizations and systems, nationally and internationally, have used the IPNG and IPG to evaluate the implementation of innovative management models and to track changes in governance; translations are available in Finnish, Portuguese, Arabic, Chinese, Korean, French, German, and English (to reflect either  the American and UK health systems).

A nominal fee for registration and the subscales key is required for organizations evaluating internal programs. This instrument is available free of charge to academic researchers and students who formally request permission and agree to adhere to guidelines for use. Click on the IPNG or IPG button on the drop-down menu below SG Measurement on the main bar to download the instruments.
