Introduction: The concern arises in the practice as a nurse, perceiving the daily work of the head nurse of the service as overloaded and stressful. It is associated with the daily work of the head nurse, an area little investigated. Objective: To understand the daily practice of the head nurse of the service. Methods: The theoretical-methodological approach was Alfred Schütz's social phenomenology. The setting was the Central Hospital of the Peruvian Air Force in the year 2018 to 2019. The sample was made up of ten service chief nurses, selected through saturation of speeches, using the phenomenological interview as a data collection technique; as an instrument, an interview guide was used and thematic analysis was used for data analysis. Results: Two categories were generated: "Assuming responsibility and leadership in the daily practice of a nursing service" and "Sharing intersubjectivities when interacting with other peers in the world of daily practice". Conclusions: The head nurse of the service, in the management of her daily practice, has a deep-rooted sense of responsibility attributed to the position. She interacts not only with the nursing team, but also with doctors and military authorities, often coming across difficulties in making them understand their needs. However, in everyday practice, the head nurse handles these intersubjectivities through her or his wealth of knowledge.
