The nursing unit’s budgeted staff model describes the number of nurses assigned to nursing hours for each patient in a day. Nurses should be aware of the budgeted staff model of their nursing unit. One of the nurses’ professional duties is to understand staffing. The first factor to address is the operating budget, which outlines the number of staff in every category, such as licensed practical nurses, registered nurses, and nursing aides. The financial plan also stipulates the salaries and benefits for every class, hiring fee, per diem expense, current staff wages, and employee development cost.
