Case study: Developing Nurse Practitioners at the College of St. Catherine

Review the required case studies located in the Harvard Business Review area of the course. Select one case study that interests you most since this will be the focus of your work for the final project. Throughout this course, this case study will frame your responses for all tasks related to the final project. As you delve into the case, your introduction of it will serve as a backdrop for the description of the need for change and why the change agent has concerns related to the change. This milestone submission addresses critical element I (introduction) and critical element II, section A (new president as a change agent) of the final project, and it serves as an initial draft for these elements. Substantial instructor feedback will be provided for foundational support of the final project.

As you consider the case study you selected and work through course content, consider ways to build on this milestone submission to expand your analysis, assessment, and application of these pieces of the project for your final submission in Module Nine. As you work on your milestone submission, it is important to note that not every aspect of the final project will be addressed by your milestone submission. When preparing your milestone and final project submissions, be sure to support your work with supplemental information and additional resources beyond the required resources and readings.
