This is the fully revised and updated second edition of Sigma's popular handbook for nurse managers. Nurse managers deal with the economic reality of patient-staffing ratios, reports, and accountants. Acronyms such as FTEs and ADCs can feel like a foreign language many new managers haven't learned yet. This book provides practical tools, tips, and strategies that will help one be a successful nurse manager, including details about how key legislation affects the budgeting process.

- An easy-to-read practical handbook about budget basics for new or less experienced nurse managers

- Helps provide essential information for running a nursing unit that is not provided in most BSN or MSN programs

- One of the few learning tools providing this type of information for nurse managers

- Current budget books on the market are geared toward a higher level of knowledge about finances and budgets and are written as thick textbooks rather than handbooks

- New to the 2nd Edition: Updated to include information about the effects of recent legislation including the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010

- New to the 2nd Edition: Includes information on the fiduciary responsibility of boards

- New to the 2nd Edition: How QSEN and HROs relate to finance and budgets

- New to the 2nd Edition: Differences between not-for-profit and for-profit institutions
