In nursing as a profession, regarding high population, increased life expectancy and the needs for good health services, the responsibility of the managers to be equipped with new knowledge is very prominent.

  So, to assess the knowledge level and attitude of nursing managers towards the principals and it’s relations with their managerial practices from the view point of their personnel, a correlative study was designed with 42 managers and 343 nursing personnel, in order to gather the data questionnaires were used.

Furthermore, considering their managerial practice, the percentages of 50% and 57.1% belonged to matrons and supervisors which practiced in a medium level, meanwhile, 70.8% of head nurses were good in managerial practices.
