A downloadable version of the guidelines, which includes further information, is available for access in the week 1 discussion thread.
**IN THE GUIDELINES IT REQUESTS EACH SECTION TO HAVE THE HEADERS I.E EXPERIENCE, REFLECTION, AND IMPLICATION FOR THE FUTURE**
This week’s readings contained a great deal of information on financial and budgeting principles. Some of you may have had some familiarity with the concepts and maybe even experience in working with them. However, there is always something new to learn. Describe your prior experiences with financial and budgeting principles, whether personally or professionally. Include your current involvement in budgeting at your institution.
**TO HELP WITH THE DISCUSSION POST:
I’VE BEEN A NURSE MANAGER FOR 3 YEARS. PRIOR TO NURSE MANAGEMENT I HAD NO EXPERIENCE WITH BUDGETING BEDSIDE PERSONAL BUDGETING. NOW I DEAL WITH BUDGETING EVERYDAY TO ENSURE MY UNIT IS PRODUCTIVE I.E NOT OVER STAFFING, NOT ORDERING UNNECESSARY SUPPLIES FOR THE UNIT.**
What pre-conceived notions related to healthcare financial and budgeting principles did you hold before this week that you understand better now or for which you have a different perspective? Reflect on at least two specific concepts. How have these new revelations influenced your thinking related to access, availability, and quality of healthcare?
IMPLICATIONS FOR THE FUTURE
How has your enhanced knowing affected the way you view your proposed project?
