Abstract

Implementing change in organizations is a key nursing leadership competency. At the same time, it is a daunting responsibility. Fortunately, models of successful change illustrate useful concepts for leaders. Change concepts embedded in successful models include careful use of power, reason, reeducation, structure, behavior, and technology. This article discusses models of change. Learning from models may help nurse executives avoid perils such as change fatigue and may promote smoother movement toward safer systems of care.
