Abstract:

Poster presented on: Saturday, November 16, 2013, Sunday, November 17, 2013

The purpose of this poster is to describe the steps for curriculum and organizational change that includes faculty in development of the change pathway, using a multi-frame approach.  Structural, human resource, political, and symbolic perspectives are useful in defining organizational goals and can assist the team to understand what is being done and why the changes are being introduced.  Managing change in a large organization can be challenging and creative, because nursing faculty has a broad variety of experiences, values, and ethical views that contribute to curriculum development.  The ongoing development and improvement of professional nursing curriculum is the responsibility of faculty and administration in higher education.  Using multi-frame thinking encourages the process of change to move the stakeholders past individual ideas and toward a broader organizational goal.  Issues relating to change processes can be identified and utilized to improve the outcome, minimizing personal agenda and bias. Change should be seen as a positive opportunity for organizations, and can lead to improved collaboration between faculty and administration.  Focusing on the actual process and relationships of those involved in the change can improve the quality of program outcomes and lead to improved learning opportunities for students.
