This week you have read about several areas of financing as it relates to the health care system and some health care retail areas that may be of interests. For this assignment, put yourself in a nurse manager, director of nursing, Chief Nursing Officer (CNO), or business owner role. Discuss three or more business principles as discussed in the Greg Fisher Power Point-in the learning activities (in your own words) which are needed to maintain safe, quality, patient-centered care that is fiscally sound, provide supportive data. In your discussion consider:
Why have you selected the business principles?
Are the business principles used at your current facility?
If you feel that they are, give supportive examples.
If you feel they are not give examples of how they could be implemented.
Why are those specific principles important in health care?
Why are those specific principles important to you?

This weekâ€s readings and lecture offered information related to lobbyists and advocates. Is there a difference between being a lobbyist and an advocate? Lobbyists provide support for policy, as do advocates, so what is the difference? Most nurses consider themselves patient advocates; however a political advocate is somewhat different. In this discussion, differentiate between a lobbyist and an advocate. Be sure to discuss a political advocate rather than a bedside advocate.
Topics to include:
Definition of a lobbyist.
Definition of an advocate.
Similarities and differences.
Why are they both important?
How does one of your selected organizations (choose one you used in your week 1 DB – What is the definition of Nursing Excellence – these organizations were discussed in the week 1 PowerPoint) lobby or advocate for health care policy?
Organizations: World Health Organization or National League of Nursing (choose one from this).
