Aim This study explored clinical nurse managers’ perceptions of the factors affecting role performance.

Method Interviews were carried out with 15 clinical nurse managers in four trusts.

Results Results highlight the main influences on the role, the barriers to successful role fulfilment, and the stressors that cause some of the postholders to consider leaving the NHS.

Conclusion The findings of this exploratory study established the diversity of the clinical nurse manager role and showed that they continue to play a central role in healthcare delivery.
