Although an organization may be a jungle of personalities and numerous challenges, positive changes can occur. This happens because of the dedication nursing leaders and those around them have. It is not easy to change the minds of many individuals, but with knowledge of appropriate change theories and perseverance, it is possible to bring about the changes you desire.
Based on the theories of organizational and change management presented in the text and this week’s readings,
Analyze a change that has happened at your place of employment. Utilizing one of the change theories as a framework, discuss how effectively this change was handled. As a nurse leader, what would you have done differently to make the change more effective? Write a 3 page paper addressing how well the change process worked
