Abstract

Reports indicating problems with quality and safety in our healthcare institutions have led to a change in how the science of safety and delivery of high-quality patient care is taught. Changing how students are educated requires nurse educators to be innovative in bridging the gap between education and practice. This article describes replicable, innovative strategies to equip faculty to lead a change in nursing curricula using Kotter's 8 steps of change.
