Since the management is the process of using organizational resources to accomplish organizational goals, through functions of planning, organizing, leading and controlling, this study was conducted with the aim of checking Head nurses’ awareness of management principles in the educational hospitals. This research is a cross – sectional (descriptive – analytical) study. In this study, Head nurses’ awareness from Principles of Management was studied in four cases (planning, organizing, guidance and leadership, control and supervision). The population of this study included all head nurses working in educational hospitals (130 people). Required information from the total population (census) was collected. The data collection tool was a researcher-made questionnaire containing demographic characteristics and awareness. Data analysis was performed using SPSS19 software. Descriptive statistics methods including mean and standard deviation were used to determine the level of awareness. Also, T-test and ANOVA and nonparametric equivalence tests were used to compare the gender and education subgroups. Analysis of the results of one-way ANOVA showed that there was a significant relationship between the level of respondent’s awareness and the variables such as head nursing experience, the number of nursing staff and nursing staffing status. The findings of this study can increase the efficiency of nursing staff, reducing the cost of treatment for health customers and related therapeutic Institutions, Finally, improving Health level of the community under the wise leadership.
