NURS 8302 Evaluating and Sustaining Change Discussion

NURS 8302 Evaluating and Sustaining Change Discussion

—John F. Kennedy
Change is inevitable. There is no getting around it, but that does not mean change always has to be
negative. Society often places a negative connotation to change, but what if the change is for the best?
What if change is what sustains growth and encourages improvement?
In nursing practice, change is unavoidable. How should change be evaluated, maintained, and sustained
in nursing practice? What role does leadership have in change management? Consider the role of
change management in nursing, and reflect on how change management may differ from change
leadership.

For this Discussion, compare change management and change leadership. Reflect on the potential
impact of leadership approaches on change, and consider how leadership may influence change in
healthcare organizations and nursing practice.
To Prepare:
 Review the Learning Resources for this week, and reflect on the mechanisms available to
evaluate change in healthcare organizations and nursing practice.
 How is change management related to change leadership?
 Consider how leadership approaches may contribute to evaluation processes for change
management, as well as for the support of sustaining changes in healthcare organizations and
nursing practice.
 What does it mean to sustain changes in healthcare organizations or nursing practice, and how
might leadership support these aims?
 Reflect on when you should stop measuring change in an organization, and why.
By Day 3 of Week 11
Post a brief comparison between change management and change leadership. Be specific. Explain how
leadership approaches may relate to processes for evaluation of and sustainment of change in a
healthcare organization or nursing practice. Then, explain the function of leadership in evaluating,
maintaining, and sustaining change. What is the influence of leadership on these aims? Be sure to
include a brief explanation of whether you should stop measuring change in an organization, and explain
why. Be specific and provide examples.
By Day 6 of Week 11

Read a selection of your colleagues’ responses and respond to at least two of your colleagues on two
different days by expanding upon your colleague’s post or offering an alternative perspective on the
