NUR 435 – Week 5 Discussion: Financial Considerations in Nursing No unread replies.No replies.

Step 1 Post your response to the discussion board.

Currently, nursing services are considered an expense for which healthcare organizations cannot bill separately. Respond to the following questions and, if appropriate, include personal experience as part of your answers:

  • Why are healthcare organizations unable to bill separately for nursing services, and what is the impact on nurse leaders?
  • What can the nursing profession, and specifically nursing leaders, do to change this issue?
  • Why are nursing services considered an expense and not an income generator?

Step 2 Read other students’ posts and respond to at least two of them by Friday at 11:59pm Mountain Time.

Ask questions of the other students that promote further thinking and discussion on the topic. Consider the changes to billing identified by the other students. Do you agree or disagree that these changes can make an impact on nursing services? Why or why not?

Use your personal experience, if it’s relevant, to support or debate other students’ posts. If differences of opinion occur, debate the issues professionally and provide examples to support opinions.
