Assistant Professor of nursing KT Waxman's book has been named Book of the Year by the American Journal of Nursing.
A new book out of the School of Nursing and Health
Professions has been name book of the year by one of the most prestigious
nursing journals in the world for cutting through the complexities of hospital
and medical-insurance funding and helping nurses become better patient advocates.
“The problem is that nurses don’t learn a lot about
financial management in nursing school.
We are often promoted to management positions because we are great
clinical nurses. Yet, we lack some of the skills to do our jobs effectively. Being
able to talk the business talk can quickly become one of our greatest assets!”
said Assistant Professor of nursing KT Waxman, who edited and contributed three
chapters to the book—“Finance and Business Management for the Doctor of Nursing
Practice.” The American Journal of Nursing named Waxman’s text one of its Book
of the Year winners for 2013 and awarded it second prize in the Advanced
Practice Nursing category.

Waxman’s book goes beyond defining finance and management
terms to explain the how-to of corporate balance sheets, strategic budgeting, management
theory, and more. “I wish I’d had this book early in my career. It would have saved
me from going down some dead ends and prepared me to build a case for the
resources I needed in ways my CFO and CEO understood,” Waxman said.
