You have to submit three Response Plans to complete this assessment.
Use the library and the Internet to research change theory, leadership, and communication strategies. Use the Suggested Resources to research leadership
and communication concepts and change theory.
• The challenge in this assessment is to create a response plan for several intervention scenarios.
o There are three deliverables required for this assessment.
Rationale for this assessment:
Nurse leaders solve problems or resolve conflict on a daily basis. Understanding how change theory can be applied to a situation and examining various
types of interventions in advance can relieve pressure on the nurse leader and improve the workplace environment and outcomes. Rehearsing potential
interventions provides a mental toolkit on which to rely during stressful times.
Your management-training workshop continues:
The second day of HR’s Nursing Leadership Workshop is designed to help you identify and practice effective responses and interventions to common
problems and situations. Participants are presented with three scenarios and must create a response plan for each scenario, in the form of a 1–2 page
Deliverables: Submit three Response Plans to complete this assessment.
• Choose 3 of the 5 Intervention Scenarios linked in the Required Resources for this assessment.
• For each scenario you choose, develop a separate Response Plan in the form of a 1–2 page outline.
o Label each outline using the example below:
Example: Response Plan for School Nurse.
Analyze each Intervention Scenario and describe the leadership, communication, and management strategies you believe would be most effective for each
Use the following subheadings to organize your Response Plan outline for each situation.
