The head nurse must coordinate nursing care by allocating resources where they are needed, whether in the form of nurses, medication, doctors or equipment.

Figure 1. Similarities between the scientific method, the nursing process
and the management process, based on Gillies, 1989
If we desire the bedside nurse to use the scientific method and demonstrate professional behaviour, should we not expect as much from the nurse manager?
Nursing management can be defined as 'the process of working through nursing staff members to provide care, cure and comfort to patients'. The nurse manager's job is to plan, organise, direct and control financial, material and human resources, so as to provide the most effective care possible to groups of patients and their families. The nursing management process parallels the nursing process that it is intended to facilitate. The management process, like the nursing process, includes gathering data, identifying problems, making plans, implementing plans and evaluating results.
A process is a series of actions leading towards a goal. In the nursing process, the ends might be relief of symptoms, prevention of complications, augmentation of health knowledge and skills, or the facilitation of maximal independence. In the nursing management process, the goal is to deliver the most effective and efficient care for a group of patients.
Figure 2. A model to determine nursing management information requirements, based on Thomas 1986
All these steps lead to the formulation of information requirements and system design. In identifying information requirements, very often a distinction is made between data and information. Data are the building blocks of information, or information without meaning.
The nursing assignment
Identifying the management information requirements for the nursing assignment problem provides one example of a nursing management process.
Most emphasis has been put in the characteristics and patterns of the assignment process are patients or tasks been assigned to a nurse?
are patients assigned to just one nurse or to a team of nurses and health care workers?
for which period in time, is the pattern assigned - is it just for one day or for the whole hospitalisation of the patient?
Most of these question are dealt with in the professional nursing literature.
