Read the case study below related to the budgeting of a unit. Prepare a brief presentation of five to seven slides (not including your title or references slide) that address the questions listed at the end. Use a minimum of four sources and reference them using APA format.
You are the manager of a medical/surgical unit. Today is April 1st, and the fiscal year began on July 1st. You work with three types of budgets for your unit: personnel, operating, and capital. You have the opportunity to make changes to the current budgets based on the unit’s variance analysis. You cannot go over the total budgeted amount assigned to you. Your budget is presented below:
Annual Budget
Expended in March
Expended Year to Date
Amount Remaining
Staff Education
Things you must consider as manager:
A changing staffing pattern has been noted with a higher acuity on your unit. Your staff and assistant managers are requesting more staff.
The unit is starting a trial medication that requires the use of high-tech pumps. The risk management department has requested that these pumps be available before the trial begins so that staff are familiar with them. The trial medication is to begin in one month. Each pump costs $4,000 and with the volume of anticipated patients that will be receiving the medication, three pumps have been requested.
You have noted that utilization of supplies has been increasing over the past two months, increasing the cost of supplies. With the increased usage of supplies, you note that there seems to be a direct correlation with an increased number of pressure injuries on the unit.
A request has been made by three nurses to attend a pressure injury seminar at a two-day conference in two months. The registration fee would be $400 per person. Projected total cost for the conference is $1,800.
Your presentation should address the following:
How will you address these requests based on the budget provided?
Which expenses would you defer to a new fiscal year?
How accurate were the budget projections? Which budgeting category was predicted most accurately and which was most inaccurate?
What budgeting methods can be used and how do they apply to this case?
What factors would need to be considered to calculate year to date variance for each category? What factors may have contributed to being over budget as determined by variance?
What steps can be taken in the 4th quarter to accommodate and adjust the budget?

Frequently asked questions

How soon can I get my paper done?

It depends with your deadline. If you need your paper completed in 3 hours, we will deliver it in that time. All you need to do is indicate your deadline in our custom order page here. Alternatively, if you are sending us your instructions via email, please be sure to indicate your deadline.

Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.

We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.

Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?

All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.

What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?

Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!

Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?

We have very few instances where we delivered a paper that a client didn’t fall in love with. But if it so happens that you don’t like your paper for any reason whatsoever, we’ll refund your money back no questions asked.

I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?

Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.

I got my order information wrong, can I change that?

Yes you can. Just reach out to our support team via email ( or live chat here and they’ll help you change the instructions.

Can I place an order via email instead of going through the order page?

Yes you can. Email Anna at, she’s in charge of our sales team. Alternatively, you can talk to our Live Chat team here and request to speak to Anna.
