  1. Hi everyone, I need some assistance. I am currently working to obtain my BSN, while working FT nights. I have a paper I need to write, its an interview of a nurse manager or nurse leader discussing budgets. All of the nurse leaders I know at my facility have indicated that they are too busy. Which I understand. Anyways I am posting in hopes any nurse leader colleagues wouldn't mind chimming in. Thank you in advance! Here are the following questions to be discussed: 1. What type of business training or education did you have prior to becoming the manager/director/CNO? 2. Describe some challenges you have managing the financial aspects of the unit/facility? 3. Which impact (pro or con) has the Affordable Health Care Act had on your unit/facility? How has health-care reimbursement affected your unit/facility? 4. What type of budgeting method is used at this facility? Zero-based budgeting? Flat percentage increase or incremental? Flexible? Performance budgeting? 5. Can you describe your budget timetable? 6. Are you directly involved with personal, operating, and capital budgets? 7. What is the level of involvement do the nurses have in terms of budget preparation? 8. How have national safety guidelines implemented on your unit/in your department affected the budget? 9. Do you use a budget manual? If yes, how is it helpful?
