How to change the precision of a field?

I'm using arc gis desktop 10.2.1.  I have a versioned table with a field that is a short with a precision of 4 and tied to a domain.  It's also non nullable.  I'd like to change this field to have a precision of 6.  What's the best way to do this?  The fact that this attribute is non nullable seems to complicate things.  If I try to add a new attribute to the table with precision of 6 and non nullable, I find that the table must be empty in order to do this.  The table will never be empty.  I can get to state zero and unversion it, but it won't ever be empty.
