Function as a Change Agent and Leader
"Function as change agents and leaders to create a preferred future for nursing education and nursing practice" (Kalb, 2008, 217).
This is an example of how I was a change agent. I researched current practice in regards to chest tube dressing changes. I was able to determine that our current practice of only reinforcing dressings was not supported by the evidence. I then wrote a policy that was in line with the current research and presented it to our hospitals policy committee. It was approved and put into practice.
