PROCHNOW, Adelina Giacomelli; LEITE, Josete Luzia  and  TREVIZAN, Maria Auxiliadora. Culture and corporal manifestations of the nurse in his/her managerial practice. Texto contexto - enferm. [online]. 2006, vol.15, n.3, pp.449-457. ISSN 0104-0707.

The objective of this study is to denote managerial specificities, analyzed according to the Culture Interpretative Theory. These specificities are expressed as cultural and corporal manifestations in the scope of the nursing management in a University Hospital. It is a descriptive study of qualitative and interpretative character, having interviewed twenty two nurses in their management functions. The corporal manifestations of the managing nurse arise as culture manifestations of the human being as a manager and a body in synergy with many elements as a result of a body that gets excited or feels emotion when managing. This study contributes to the advance of knowledge and to the capacity of confronting organizational uncertainties, within the complexity of the hospital environment.
