Business management, budgeting, and nursing leadership are closely related concepts that can impact the success of healthcare organizations. Understanding and integrating these concepts is essential for DNP nurses who aspire to advance their practice and improve patient outcomes.
The DNP Essentials of Doctoral Education for Advanced Nursing Practice and the AONE Nurse Executive Competencies emphasize the importance of financial management and leadership skills in nursing practice. These competencies require DNP nurses to demonstrate proficiency in managing resources, analyzing financial data, and developing effective budget proposals to support their organization’s mission and goals.
In my current workplace, budgeting and financial management play a critical role in decision-making processes. As a DNP, my role includes identifying areas of improvement, developing evidence-based interventions, and presenting budget proposals to support these initiatives.
The implication for my proposed project and role as a DNP is that I must be knowledgeable in business management, budgeting, and nursing leadership to ensure the success of my interventions. By integrating these concepts, I can ensure that my interventions are feasible, sustainable, and impactful, ultimately improving patient outcomes and the overall quality of care in my organization.
