Abstract: Many nurses in the hospitals suggest that performing some reformations is required in the management programs of their own places of research. This study aims to describe and analyze the common measures as well as the life experiences among the nurses working at the educational and therapeutic centers. This study is of phenomenological hermeneutic type. The participants were from across the Iran and included 15 nurses, 4 of whom were middle managers of nursing with the clinical experience of patient care. In this study, the data were collected through deep and nonstructural interviews with the nurses. The analysis of information was carried out hermeneutically using the Diekelmann’s seven-stage method. Three basic themes showing the values and concepts of management in particular and consequently a pattern expressing its belonging to the themes were revealed as "adaptation with managerial issues, organizational, individual and professional values for the achievement of nursing human care" considering the performance of a clinical nurse. Furthermore, the findings of this study indicated that the managerial issues in the hospital environment such as the manager’s behavior and managerial approaches, structure and environment of caring, equipment, values and personal expectations of the nurse, organization, society and profession have an inseparable connection in patient care and are interdependent. The analysis and discussion of how these issues are related to each other help us develop our understanding of the way the adaptation of management issues can be effective in the improvement and removal of the obstacles in performing human care in the clinical research of nursing. The improvement and removal of obstacles refers to the methods with the help of which the manager can make an attempt to consider and provide whatever, the nurses needs and develop and enhance the nursing workforce so that they could perform their caring roles. This study reveals those experiences which are mainly required to care for patients, suggesting that their importance be maintained in the health care systems and develop more than ever.
