Healthcare Budgets for Nurses 1.25 CE/CME
This activity has been approved for 1.25 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™
If you want to insure your patients get good care, involve yourself in the budget. This course will take the mystery out of the budget in your organization and empower you to add your voice to how and where resources are allocated. When those who see patients every day are allowed into the budget process, patient outcomes improve, and costs decrease. Since nurses are in the closest contact with patients, their input holds special value. This course begins with just enough accounting basics to allow you to understand where the budget numbers come from. Just like knowing the underlying cause of disease helps in treatment, so does knowing the foundation of finance. Upon course completion you will have the skill to enter the world of resource allocation planning using the language of finance. You will also be able to conduct budget variance analysis. Pre and post testing, video presentations and interactive discussion with colleagues will enhance your learning experience.
