Nursing Education Perspectives: November-December 2010 - Volume 31 - Issue 6 - p 381-386 Buy Abstract ABSTRACT At schools of nursing nationwide, surging enrollments in the early 2000s necessitated changes in administrative structures and departmental organization. The authors describe a collaboration between faculty and administrators at their midwestern liberal arts college that aided a reorganization of the school of nursing. Kurt Lewin's 1951 change theory provided the framework for the restructuring, from the initial phases of data collection through implementation of the new administrative structure. The reorganization has resulted in a more efficient use of resources in the school of nursing. Copyright 2010 by National League for Nursing, Inc.
