Abstract

Nurses in staff development have a strong focus on developing programs that support the needs of individual learners. They are much less focused on ways that their programs may support ongoing practice change in the workplace. This article outlines a number of characteristics of staff development programs that are trying to incorporate an organizational change perspective. It then illustrates these characteristics with a case study of a specific staff development program.
