This 1 module (3 CE credit) course introduces nurses to Kurt Lewin's Change Management Theory, a time-tested, easily applied field theory that is often considered the epitome of change models, suitable for both personal and organizational change.
Kurt Lewin, (1890 - 1947) a Gestalt social psychologist, has been acknowledged as the "father of social change theories" since several contemporary models are at least loosely based on Lewin's work.
