Abstract [en]

Nurses play an important role in detecting, interpreting and deciding appropriate actions to take in order to care for patients in acute situations. Nevertheless, novice nurses are reported as feeling unprepared to provide appropriate care in acute situations. In order to address this issue, it is important to describe factors in nursing education and first year of practice that enable nurses to provide appropriate care in acute situations. 17 novice nurses were interviewed in this qualitative study. A phenomenographic analysis was applied and four categories were discovered: Integrating theory into practice, access to adequate support, experience-based knowledge and personality traits. Results suggest that a variety of factors contribute to novice nurses’ ability to provide appropriate care in acute situations. Experience of acute situations and the integration of theory and practice are pivotal in acquiring skills to provide appropriate care. To accomplish this, reflection, practice and/or applied training with a patient perspective is recommended.
