Nurse Managers responsible for budgets and other questions

  1. I am fixing to graduate from nursing school and I need some information about nurse managers with experience. These are the questions that I have to feel out. If you don't have time to answer all them that is fine. Any responses will help! Thanks

    How do you prepare for your role as a nurse manager with the responsibility of budgets?
    Did you get training on how to manage budgets?
    How did you learn this role in management?

    What are some positive and negative leadership and management behaviors observed in the hospital?
    Why is it important that nurses who are not in administrative positions understand and acquire leadership and management skills?
    As the clinical nurse leader on a busy unit, there is a problem with shift rift. How would you apply team-building skills to heal the rift?
