Descriptive statistics, one-way analysis of variance (ANOVA) and correlation and regression analyses were used for data analysis. 61,4% of the first line nurse managers stated that they had conflict with staff nurses. Organizational factors were the most commonly stated reason of the conflict.

The overall emotional intelligence score of first line nurse managers was found as 88,46±7,74 (min: 22 points, max: 110 points). There was no statistically significant difference between the conflict management style mean scores and first line nurse managers’ age, education level, the length of time in the profession, the length of time in the hospital, the length of time as a first line nurse manager and working unit.
