Leading Change in the Curriculum
Abstract:
Leading Change in the Curriculum
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International
Conference Year:2007
Author:McCoy, Cynthia
[Scientific session research presentation] Often in nursing education programs, traditions develop that promote pride, honor, and recognition. Other times traditions develop that promote an unhealthy academic environment. When the latter occurs, it is imperative that change take place in order to retain the positive aspects of a nursing education program. The purpose of this case study is to identify the challenges and opportunities inherent in a change from the traditional nursing curriculum to that of a nursing curriculum with a focus on nursing as caring. Using Lewin?s change theory as a guide for the change process, and Boykin - Schoenhofer's theory of nursing as caring as a basis for the curriculum, the implementation of the paradigm shift was undertaken. Resisting forces and assisting forces are described, as well as steps in the process. The utilization of leadership skills, communication skills, creativity, and the essential need for collaboration among faculty are highlighted.  This presentation includes suggestions and implications for nursing faculty contemplating leading their colleagues through a major change process.
