Author information

  • 1Nursing Service, Shadyside Hospital, Pittsburgh, PA.


Our healthcare system is undergoing major transformation. Most nurse executives know that change is necessary and inevitable, but are less certain how to position their departments for these changes. The Transformational Model for the Practice of Professional Nursing was developed as a "road map" for that purpose. Part 1 of the model discusses the paradigm shifts that need to occur in professional practice for future success. The various components of the model are presented, and applications are identified. Part 2 will appear in the May 1994 issue of JONA, and will discuss the implementation of this model into a practice setting.
