ESTEFO AGUERO, Silvana  y  PARAVIC KLIJN, Tatiana. NURSING IN THE ROLE OF HEALTH CARE MANAGER. Cienc. enferm. [online]. 2010, vol.16, n.3, pp. 33-39. ISSN 0717-9553.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-95532010000300005.

In Chile, as established by the 1997 Sanitary code and the 2007 General Administrative Law N°19, the nurse is responsible for the management of care. That is to say, nursing must assume the role of patient care manager and as such, many duties and responsibilities are assigned to the nurse. The purpose of this article is to bring attention to the importance of demonstrating the necessary aspects of the role of nursing care manager, especially the importance of leadership and the ability to communicate and make decisions. It is shown that many of these dimensions influence the quality of care provided as well as the continuity of care.

Palabras clave : Nursing; care management; leader.
