The leadership and direction of the clinical enterprise of any hospital or health system either excels or fails through the nursing staff and its leadership. Nurse leaders have a demanding, complex role that commands accountability in leading the nursing profession and achieving quality patient outcomes. They have consistently gone through significant challenges. Through these challenges, nursing leaders are tasked with providing quality care, reducing costs while improving patient experiences– a challenge that requires strong leaders at the helm of their organizations.

This conference brings together senior nursing executives—including Chief Nursing Officers, Chief Nursing Executives and Chief Operating Officers—and leadership from hospitals and health systems to strategize, collaborate and share best practices on patient safety, patient satisfaction, clinical transformation, readmissions, care coordination, quality and key new drivers shaping the healthcare industry.

Workshop
Nurse Manager’s Guide to Budgeting and Finance for Nurse Managers
The reality is that healthcare costs are rising and reimbursement to our healthcare delivery systems continues to decline. Whether one likes it or not, healthcare is a business and nurses must become more fiscally savvy. Nurse managers must be familiar with the budgeting process. Two budgets that nurses manage daily are the operating budget and the capital budget. The budget process is ongoing and dynamic, and it provides feedback. When managers begin to prepare a budget, they collect data, plan activities and services, implement the plan and evaluate the outcomes. In developing the operating budget, you must determine what services are offered or are going to be offered if a new service is planned, the payer mix, the patient mix which relates to acuity, the case mix index, the staff mix and the standards of care that drive the nursing hours of care per patient day. To sum it up – It’s every nurse manager’s job to assure fiscal accountability for their respective unit or department. Every nurse should manage their respective unit or units as if it were their own business, regardless of whether they are managing in a not-for-profit health system or a for-profit health system. It’s also every nurse’s job to make certain they are using resources wisely, as we’re all responsible for the budget. Being fiscally savvy and managing our budgets well will assure long-term survival of our organizations. This session will explore budgeting and finance for nurse managers.
