New guide for nurse managers makes budget creation easy
STTI announces The Nurse Manager’s Guide to Budgeting & Finance
INDIANAPOLIS – Nurses are promoted into management positions because they are good nurses, not good accountants. Still, nurse managers must learn how to build, revise and report on their budgets in addition to juggling nurse-patient ratios on a shift-to-shift basis. Now, the Honor Society of Nursing, Sigma Theta Tau International (STTI) has released The Nurse Manager’s Guide to Budgeting & Finance to help nurse managers with this important task.
The Nurse Manager’s Guide to Budgeting & Finance by Al Rundio, PhD, DNP, RN, APRN, NEA-BC, DPNAP, is the first practical, easy-to-understand budgeting and finance book published just for nurses. The second book in STTI’s popular Nurse Manager’s Guide series provides useful tools, tips and strategies about budget basics for new or less-experienced nurse managers.
With straightforward writing, The Nurse Manager’s Guide to Budgeting & Finance offers essential information for running a nursing unit that is not provided in most BSN or MSN programs and is one of the few learning tools providing this type of information for nurse managers.
“Dr. Rundio presents the most complex concepts in a very straightforward way. Using real-life scenarios to illustrate complex points is an extremely effective way to explain budgeting. This guide is an excellent tool for both the novice manager and the experienced administrator. Kudos to Dr. Rundio for providing such an easy-to-understand approach to budgeting concepts.”
