The modern administration of the services of health of the community makes necessary readjustments and modifications of the organizational culture to achieve a bigger cohesion of the work teams that rebounds positively in the users of these services. In this sense, one of the factors to keep in mind, for their implications in the climate and in the development of the objectives of the organization, it would be the consistency among the values toward the work of supervisors and professionals to their position. On this base, the present work thinks about as objectives, on one hand, to identify the profile of values in the work that present the supervisors and its respective teams of nurses and, for other, to check if consistency exists among the profiles of values of both groups. For it, it has been selected a sample of 53 nurses and 4 supervisors of four different areas from infirmary of a hospital of the Andalusian community. All they answered the questionnaire of work values EVAT-30. The obtained results indicate that supervisors and nurses establish hierarchies of similar values and, therefore, with a high consistency grade. On the other hand, the dimensions of superior order more valued by both groups they have been those of Self-Enhancement and Conservation.
