Financial Management for Nurse Managers: Merging the Heart with the Dollar, Fourth Edition is a unique text that addresses the financial management issues faced by nurse leaders in a variety of settings, including hospitals, ambulatory/outpatient clinics, long-term care facilities, and home care. With an evidence-based and practical approach, it covers a wide range of financial information, including healthcare finance, economics, budgeting, reimbursements, accounting, and financial strategies.

Completely updated and revised, the Fourth Edition features a new, streamlined structure that concentrates on core financial management topics while condensing supplemental material. As a result, the text is organized into three parts:

  • • Healthcare, the Economy, and Value-Based Purchasing
  • • Budget Principles
  • • Financial Strategies and Accounting Issues

The Fourth Edition also focuses on bringing financial concepts to life for students with real-life applications in nursing practice. For instructors, it offers invaluable resources, such as staffing and budgeting practice activities.
