The Basics of Nursing and Organizational Finance
The American healthcare system is undergoing radical transformations that will impact the role and influence of nurses at the bedside and beyond. The primary purpose of this course is to explore healthcare finance and budgeting from a national perspective down to a unit or departmental perspective that will bring fiduciary confidence to any nurse leader’s business skill toolkit.
The primary purpose of this class is to develop confidence in fiduciary business skills, such as:
- Preparing, managing, and controlling organizational and departmental budgets, including calculating FTE’s and other resources.
- Mastering strategies for survival in the value-based environment and other critical drivers of financial performance at the national, organizational, and department/unit level.
Who Should Attend?
This program is specially designed for nurse managers and nurse leaders interested in understanding the details of hospital and unit finance in greater detail, so they can better operationalize their nursing unit budget.
