The supervisors’ managerial is in the level of operational manager, which is a strategic position because it can determine the success of nursing services provided, leading directly and controlling the care resources in realizing quality nursing services. This study used a quantitative design with correlation studies and a cross sectional approach. The objective of the study is to determine the relationship of charge nurse’s competencies in function of management in improving the performance of implementer nurses in implementing nursing care. The number of samples was 132 implementer nurses in 10 inpatient wards. The process of Partial Least Square data analysis was used to test variables. The results shows a significant relationship between charge nurse’s competencies and function of management which shows a strong relationship and positive pattern with r 0.429 (p = 0.0005) and the performance of implementer nurses with r 0.816 (p = 0.0005) and there was no significant relationship between functions of management and performance of implementer nurses. T-statistical test results shows a correlation of charge nurse’s competencies and function of management 6.291> 1.96 (path coefficient 0.855), there is a relationship between charge nurse’s competencies and performance of implementer nurses with value of 30.460> 1.96 (path coefficient 0.436). The researchers concluded that the charge nurse’s competency variables, charge nurse’s function of management were able to improve the performance of implementer nurses. Suggestions are competency variables need to be improved for the next research so that the assessment does not focus on implementer nurses or self assessment of supervisors’ managerial with standardized instruments.
