Most nurses work in bureaucratic systems which are often managed by business personnel who engage in decision making from a business perspective. To effectively communicate and participate in decision making processes, nurses would greatly benefit from knowledge of the language, concepts, and perspectives of the business world. To strengthen this knowledge, two required courses, Introduction of Management and Organizational Behavior, were added to the baccalaureate curriculum in 1997. Goal: Develop nurse leaders for the 21st century. The purpose of this paper is to describe the process for developing, implementing and evaluating this innovative curricular change. Topics will include determination of need, selection of specific business courses, modification of the nursing leadership/management course, challenges encountered, and responses to these challenges. Relationships will be demonstrated between business knowledge and the curricular recommendations included in the Essentials of Baccalaureate Education for Professional Practice as well as the Pew Health Commission Report Healthy America: Practitioners for 2005. The positive impact on the leadership/management clinical course of requiring two business courses as prerequisites will be addressed. Exemplars of students= ability to apply, analyze, synthesize, and evaluate business theory and management principles in the health care delivery system will be presented. Building on, rather than initiating, a knowledge base in management principles in the clinical nursing course has enabled students to be better prepared for nursing practice in the 21st century with its limited resources, changing delivery models, and technological advances.
