GCU NUR514- Organizational Leadership and Informatics Week 3 Assignment

As an advanced registered nurse, you will serve as a leader within your organization. Part of this role will entail being a change agent, and spurring positive change on behalf of patients, colleagues, and the industry.

Consider a situation you experienced previously where change did not go as planned in your health care organization. Create a 10-15-slide PowerPoint presentation in which you will assess the situation and the steps that should have been taken to successfully implement change.

Change is an essential part of the organization to improve patient satisfaction and outcomes. If there are resistance or obstacles for example, in this case, an argument between team members regarding spiritual care needs to be removed or resolved before processing a change. As a nurse leader and agent, I recommend using Kotter’s change model to resolve this problem. 4th step of Kotter’s model which is communicating the change vision is especially useful in this situation. In this step, the nurse leader gives importance to communicating the change vision with employees and team members. Provides opportunities for open communication regarding their concerns, fear, and disagreement. Clarifying their concerns and doubts is critical at this stage. Understanding the change vision and educating them about the benefits helps them to understand the reason for the change. Resistance and obstacles are part of a change project, and it is predictable. Hence understanding and resolving this resistance will enhance the process of change.

Describe the background of the situation, including the rationale for and goal(s) of the change.

Identify the key interprofessional stakeholders (both internal and external) that should be involved in change efforts.

Discuss an appropriate change theory or model that could be used to achieve results.

Outline how you would initiate the change.

Describe the impact to the organization if the change initiative is unsuccessful again, and potential steps the interprofessional team could take if the change is unsuccessful.

Make sure to include slide notes of 100-250 words for each slide.
