    Hello Jackie and thank you for your honest posting about nursing and financial management. I too have very little experience with marketing, budgeting , and economics. I consider myself a more scielnce person so this coarse was very challenging to me as well. I am embarrassed to say that I struggled sometimes with the subject matter just because I am not as finicaially as savy. Nurses have to have more knowledge about patients and costs of nursing expenses. I do not think you failed because as we fail we learn and this is what this coarse was really all about to expand our knowledge of nursing economics and management. I think nursing and compensation is going to change for the worst .I am afraid to say it and I realize that that goes against the grain but more people are going into nursing for the security of a job and not the passion so the demand and need will decrease I know there are a lot of jobs out there but they are not filled due to budgeting which is essential and necessary to keep costs down and to maintain budgets. As you say nurses are under paid and likely to stay that way because with the economic downturn the demand has decreased so the education requirements have increased. I think its key for us all to network and utilize our resources now more than ever. Developing relationships with people in our organizations we work for and networking builds coalitions to influence goals and resources which allocates lateral relationship building, where there is no influence or authority, helps nurses effectively attain their goals Finkler, Kovner, & Jones, 2007).SS…
