This workshop was crafted in consultation with the Administrative Nurses Professional Practice Group in response to a survey for the "top 6" areas of need for education and skill development identified by administrative nurses and leaders across Saskatchewan. Within this survey, respondents indicated they wanted information on business case development, help with how to write proposals for implementation of innovative projects, and how to properly integrate research results as supportive evidence into their documents.

Agenda includes:
- What EXACTLY is a business case and where do I start?
- Case Studies
- Small Group Interactive Practical Work
