​Nurse leaders need the business acumen, financial skills and executive presence to hold meaningful conversations with CFOs and CEOs regarding the value of nursing. They need to be able to construct comprehensive business plans and build their business case for change. In this issue, you will read about the financial implications regarding workforce development, academic/service partnerships, faculty shortages, strategic planning and more.  Our Finance Matters column, written by Dr. Pat Patton, details the value of virtual nursing from a financial perspective and shares a case study and our Hot Topics column by Carol Bradley: Engaging Governance in Workforce Strategy and Performance delves into educating our governing boards. Bradley states “There is no mission or margin without caregivers."​​

To hear more about the issue, plesae visit our Podcast page and listen our Guest Editor, Christine Delucas, describe what to expect.  Don’t forget our “Continuing th​e Conversation​​” column which provides faculty and educators talking points and critical thinking exercises for their use.
