FISCAL AND RESOURCE UTILIZATION IN NURSING 4 resources required – who must be managed well to get the project done. Since people might be working on different projects, managing them can sometimes become a difficult task. However, this problem can be solved when the program leader knows the individuals who should be included in the program from the beginning to the end (Kerzner & Kerzner, 2017). It is also important to decide in advance who will perform what tasks. Additionally, everyone ought to be assigned a role that matches their skills and talents. If more people need to be recruited, it should be included in the proposal. Importantly, all the necessary tasks must also be covered in the proposal. Fiscal management strategies must also be taken into account. This is important as it will help in determining how the finances will be used once they have been appropriated. Since time is also a vital resource in a program, it is important to create a timeline to guide the program tasks. A timeline helps in knowing what should happen where and when it should happen (Adams et al., 2003). For instance, the nursing leader should estimate the time required to prepare and print surveys, train nurses and gather information. Furthermore, arrangements should also be made to borrow equipment to be used in the project. Importantly, equipment should be ready when needed to avoid program delays (Kerzner & Kerzner, 2017). The main reason for making these strategic decisions is to anticipate everything that is required and what might go wrong - to make sure that it has been arranged for. Most nursing leaders do not measure their decision effectiveness, and this makes it hard for them to tell whether they are doing better or worse. It is necessary to measure the impact of decisions in a program to ensure that goals of the program are being achieved.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
