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.

This online course consists of a lesson, assigned readings and supportive media, and is evaluated by completing a multiple choice final examination.


This course is intended to provide the learner with the opportunity to:
1. Identify driving and restraining forces that influence change.

2. Recognize the behaviors and actions that help to lead the change process through the three stages of unfreezing, changing, and refreezing.

3. Describe the characteristics and factors that ensure successful change through the application of the three stages and force field analysis.

4. Transpose Kurt Lewin's Change Management theory to their own development within the field of nursing informatics.

June Kaminski, RN MSN PhD(c)
on behalf of Nursing Informatics Learning Center

June Kaminski, RN MSN PhD(c) began her education in Nursing Informatics through various upper level and graduate courses in Computer Programming and Applications in Education. These were done as a minor to her Masters of Science in Nursing at the University of BC from 1987 to 1991. In 1986 she served as the Medical - Surgical ward trainer for nurses being orientated to the new Hospital Information System at a Vancouver hospital where she worked as a staff nurse. Helping nurses learn to integrate computer use into their nursing practice became a fascination of June's which she has continued to indulge over the past thirty years.

In 1990, June received faculty release time to redevelop Nursing 200: Computers in Nursing for the Diploma Nursing Program at Kwantlen Polytechnic University in Western Canada. Careful attention was taken to integrate Nursing Informatics theory and provide hands-on training in computer applications such as word processing, graphics, use of Computer Assisted Instruction and Hospital Information systems

Later in 1996, when the BSN program was adopted at Kwantlen, June independently developed integrated learning activities for Nursing Informatics for every nursing course in the program. In the fall of 1999, a web-based program of study was introduced in addition to the paper manual approach, to encourage self-directed study for students to access lessons both within the classroom and on personal computers on campus, in libraries, or at home. The Nursing Informatics theory component was expanded to reflect current research and application. Computer application instruction was also expanded to incorporate emerging internet and utility applications such as spreadsheets, databases, web page development, chatrooms, email, multimedia, telenursing, electronic literature searches, videoconferencing, and so on.

June is currently the Program and Curriculum Coordinator for the BSN Post Baccalaureate program at Kwantlen, a hybrid nursing program that consists of mostly online courses supplemented with three practice residencies and capstone courses. Nursing informatics and interactive, creative technologies have been artfully woven into the curriculum to prepare nurses in the necessary conpetencies for effective practice.

June is currently finishing PhD study at the University of British Columbia in Curriculum and Pedagogy Studies. Her focus is educational technology, informatics, aesthetics and distance education for nursing. Currently, she is completing her PhD dissertation work on investigating faculty perceptions of how nursing informatics fits into nursing education.
