ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the various contradictions faced by nurse managers. According to the author, the traditional structures of nursing and hospitals have been organized in a very top down and authoritarian manner. Research in this regard, consistently tells us that nurses leave hospital nursing because they do not feel a sense of autonomy, control over their practice or respect as a professional. They do not have sufficient input into the system. Although these needs could easily be addressed through a professional model of nursing, hospitals have been generally reluctant in doing so.
